We just received more pictures and a letter from our friends at Mpila orphanage in Congo. Please keep these young women in your prayers! "Immaculée is also 15 but in reality she is probably 17 or 18. What a vulnerable age for these young ladies. So many have gotten pregnant and then are forced to leave the orphanage. Getting training and then getting a job gives them some value and an opportunity to support themselves."

"Cocoa is 9 years old. She has 2 of her sisters that are also at Mpila, Maison de Nazareth. She has a hard time in school. When she gets older she also will attend a technical school and learn a trade which will be much less frustrating for her."
