Cherry Rose

Cherry Rose.  Her mother died of leukemia two years ago. She is 11 years old and has two younger brothers, Jonrey and Andrey ages 9 and 5.  The 5 year old has special needs.  There was no work in the remote mountain region where they live so their father had to go somewhere else to find work.  He comes home once a week to bring some rice and, hopefully, some fish. He earns about $1 a day.

Cherry Rose was in school when her mother died — third grade.  But she had to quit school to take care of her brothers.  She has become their mother, the one who cares for them as best as she can.  Pastor Armen said he hopes all three can be sponsored because the young ones are old enough to go to pre-school and Cherry Rose can go back to third grade.  School will also give her the opportunity to be a child instead of a mother. Can you imagine the weight this little girl of 11 years carries as she cares for her 2 brothers, one of whom has special needs?

These children have many needs – education, clothing and nutrition. Notice the “red” hair that indicates poor nutrition.  God has given us the opportunity to be part of His plan for these young lives.  Being sponsored will change their lives forever.  We are praying for 500 additional children to be sponsored by the end of May.  These 3 are some of them.  Will you help?  Go to Sponsor A Child.

About kathybohlin

I am passionate about helping poor children in Philippines come to Jesus, get an education and become all God created them to be. Right now our ministry (Fullness in Christ Ministries) helps almost 900 of the poorest of the poor children in the Philippines. They are over seen by 24 national pastors whom we consider trustworthy and competent. There is accountability. I am single and contented with that. Also I want everyone to know how wonderful Jesus is!!
