We are so excited to see that Marjorie has graduated from the 6th grade in March, 2016. In the Philippines this is a major accomplishment, especially for a person with her back ground. She had a large tumor hanging from her forehead. Her mother abandoned this squatter family so her father took her brother and left her to be raised by the grandparents. Their shanty home partially collapsed in a flood. Marjorie was too shy to go to school because of her deformity.
Through the local church we reinforced their home and eventually moved it to another area. With some help from the church, a government program and Mission Concepts supporters she received a surgery and started school at age 8. We will continue to encourage her and financially support her through high school and college if she wants to go. Please pray for her and her grandparents. Squatter village life is huge struggle
