We got a call to receive a  Lucia, with her infant son, Josue, from Quiche. We felt the Lord wanted us to take them in. Lucia was raped by her own father on two occasions. She is a very sweet girl who is enjoying studying and not having to be responsible for her the full care of her little son/half brother.  She needs prayer to get over the rest of her past abuse. She is a very quiet girl. She is doing better in school this yr. Math is her best subject. She loves to cook and play games with mom and the other kids. Lucia has a job this yr cleaning for a neighbor once a week. She has come a long way and is on a long hard road to overcoming her past memories.  Lucia is a family girl. She is good with the toddlers. Lucia loves to swim and run.



Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after the orphans in their distress.

– James 1:27
