Meet Scleve... and Pray

This is Scleve. She's a 16 year old girl that we sponsor through Compassion International. Scleve really needs your prayers right now. She lives in Haiti. I'm sure you've all heard about the magnitude-7 earthquake that hit Haiti on Tuesday. There is so much devastation, thousands left homeless, thousands left injured and dead.

She is SIXTEEN. Can you remember what you were doing at the age of sixteen? Not experiencing such total chaos and fear in your home, what's supposed to be your one safe place.

If you feel so moved, you can go to Compassion's website to donate to the aid going into Haiti. Compassion has told us they'll contact us when they know more about Scleve's current status. Please, pray for her. Pray for everyone in Haiti.

What an amazing, giving, compassionate thing to do, sponsoring a child in another country! It completely changes your perspective especially when they face hardships we may never comprehend. Thank you for sharing Scleve's story with us- she helps to make the tragedy personal for us. We will pray.
