Mihaela

There was once a little girl in Stroiesti, who everyone thought was stupid.  She wasn’t worth much to her family.  She was dismissed because she had a deformed foot and was slower than average. But she loved to smile and her younger brother adored her, mostly because she took care of him.

One day, a family from the city met this little girl and after much prayer and consideration, they brought her to live with them.  She had an operation on her foot and got documentation to receive assistance from the government. Her parents weren’t happy with this because they wanted the money, but the family did the paper work and the money was used for this little girl.  The little girl started meeting with a tutor because she had never been to school even though she was 11 years old.

After awhile she went to live with her tutor and her family-she has a sister now.  She still has contact with her family and visits them, but she has flourished in the city living with her tutor.  In the past year, this little girl has finished first through third grade, and is scheduled to finish the fourth grade in the summer. She goes to church each Sunday and loves going to Children’s house church each week.  She loves to learn and studies without anyone pushing her to do so. She loves God’s word.

This little girl, who could barely talk and when she did it was so hard to understand her, now speaks clearly and with confidence.  She even got up in front of the church and said Psalm 23.

This little girl, who struggled to walk, now moves with the rest of the children.

I praise God for the change He has done in Mihaela.  I praise both of the families for taking in this special little girl and seeing past what other saw as barriers, and helping her get an education.  I pray we will be able to take her camp next year; her host mom has already said she can go!

Our God is a wonderful, mighty, powerful God. All glory to HIM!
