Thank you from Jackline

I would like to thank you for your help . God chose me among fellow girls and I am still wondering why .

All the ‘gifts’ you have sent to me and my daughter have changed our lifestyle. Before then I was so sad. But I thank god for enabling me make some steps forward. I was struggling with life since my parents divorced , I was abandoned  and then  became pregnant whilst still at primary school but supporting me made me realize I was loved. And now I can talk like other girls and even laugh.

I have now finished my exams and I hope to pass well so that I will go to Secondary School but I am still waiting for results to be out on 25th January then I will see. For now I am praying to God that I will be happy when I get my results.

The situation of my daughter is still making me sad. She is two years old but she still can’t walk. She walks around the table but cannot walk alone. She can also not stand on her own. I try teaching her to walk with a stick but she is afraid. But I am praying to God to make her walk again.

How is the weather in your country? Here it is raining cats and dogs and it is very muddy.

For now I am also praying to God to bless you and may you continue helping other girls just like you helped me.
