I met her parents & they showed me there home. It was really sad. I gave her a bible in amharic & a few other things like snacks & such.
Holli got to sponsor her little brother. It was so neat.
Her parents were so grateful that their children were going to get sponsored.
The mom makes bead necklaces for a living in Korah (the trash dump area) & her dad has a prosthitic leg & can't work.
This picture pretty much sums up their home. One bed, a dresser a bench, in a tin building, in Korah.
I got home & was upset to learn that Samrawit was not in the program. I was asked if I would like to sponsor another child. I couldn't. I already told Samrawit I would sponsor her. I gave her a picture of me & my family so she would remember me. I asked that she get put on a waiting list & they said they would.
I am happy to say that today I got an e-mail from Project 61 & they are trying to get her into the program. It is not official yet but they are waiting to hear back from Ethiopia. We have been praying for this girl & I am just in tears. The Lord is so good & HE loves Samrawit SO much!!!
Beau & I are so excited!!
We will keep praying.
