Christella is a young teeneager that joined our community last summer. For two days now, she has been missing. She did not return from school yesterday. Christella, the cousin of one of our kids, came from the mountains to continue schooling in the 5th grade, even though she is 14 years old. This was the first time she had been in the city. She lives with her aunt here in Jacmel. During the summer, she earned money for school by selling food in the market that her aunt had cooked. This was very difficult work, having to walk all day in the sun. We bought Christella’s books for school and some other needed school items.
In the first photo, where the girls are learning liturgical dance, Christella is in the white t-shirt. In the second photo, she is wearing the red t-shirt. Please pray with us that she is found and that she is okay.
