Before she was the age of three, Dieula’s mother was sick and passed away suddenly.
Her father was elderly and struggled to take care of Dieula. He initially placed her in the home of some family and friends but was concerned that Dieula was not being properly care. He approached Danita’s Children and asked if we could take Dieula into our home.
Dieula’s Father passed away two weeks after Dieula came to live with us.
Over the years and in the care of our Danita’s Children family, we have seen Dieula become a shooting star. When God entrusts us with His children, our prayer is that they would deeply know their Heavenly Father and inherit the unique ways He has purposed them for. Dieula has done just that.
This year, at the age of 18, she demonstrates what true leadership is. Once a young child that came to us at the age of three, is now a young, confident woman who leads devotionals on Wednesday nights and teaches Sunday School classes for her younger peers. As she looks ahead to what is next for her life, one thing we do know is:
She will walk confidently in the way of the Lord (Proverbs 3:23).
