Meet Sonya … A 16 Year Old Girl Living A Tough Life

This is a picture of Sonya and I. She had just come from working at the dump. Marc Tindall met her almost 5 years ago when she was barely 11. She has worked in the dump since she was 9 years old. About 2 months ago, a gang killed Sonya’s boyfriend – to settle a debt or some issue. Sadly, Sonya was with him at the time. Marc helped buried him. Sometimes we have to use funds from Dump Day to bury people. Last year we buried 2 kids and 4 young men who were killed in different ways.

Last Thursday, Sonya stepped on a nail and the next day her foot was about 3x normal size. We have her on some powerful antibiotics so her foot will get better. We also went to buy groceries for the house because she can’t work for the coming days. The Dump Fund is how we are able to provide antibiotics and food for the poor.

Jesus said whatever you do for the least of these you have done it for me. I guess we took care of Jesus wounded foot and bought him some food. He just happened to be in the form of a 16 year old girl living a very difficult life.

Dump Day is May 8th. I hope you’ll help again this year.

    not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
