We have one more girl who has joined our family this week. Her name is Pallavi and she is 14 years old. She comes from a very poor family. Her mom is working hard to take care of her family. Pallavi has two sisters and one brother. Her dad is in prison. He was sentenced to jail for 17 years for raping her older sister. All three girls were not safe from their own father. But as he is now in prison it was very difficult for her mom to take care of her four children. All four are very young and Pallavi is the middle one. She wants to continue her studies as she is now in grade nine.
As we heard about her family, we wanted to help all of them but she said they cannot leave their house now and her two siblings are too young to leave their mom. So she decided to come here for her studies. She will be joining the school this month. She is a young girl of 14 but she has gone through lots of suffering, which we can see in her face. She is very down. She has come here for education, but we believe God has some plan for her life. She will not remain as she is now. She has lost faith even in her own dad. She cannot trust him anymore and this has led her to frustrations, but God will heal her pain and bring her out of this trauma soon. God will be her Father and He will restore her life. This is our prayer that God will use Pallavi to bless her family. Our prayers can change her life.
