SHE CAME TO THE ORPHANAGE 2018
Syliviah’s mother was a very careless drunkard!! She was alcohol addicted. Although she was always drunk after work, she used to support her daughter with the basic needs such as food clothing and also education.
But the house rent was a serious challenge for her to settle and it had accumulated for 2 years. They were in conflicts with the landlord for the accumulated rent debt. One day she decided to leave her child Syliviah in the home of the landlord with an excuse that she went to search for money somewhere that will help in clearing this accumulated rent debt. She went missing for more than seven months!! She never returned to the premises!
The landlord was now impatient and cruel enough to chase away Syliviah from her home! Syliviah became helpless and later after months of her hustling she visited our church during Sunday service after which she told one of our ushers called Isaac about her terrible life experience!!
She was given a chance to speak in front of all the believers and we were all touched and moved by her situation and through the sympathy and the mercies of God we could not let the girl go back to a miserable life in the street but we retained her and took her to the orphanage facility and in the following morning our two church elders went with her to the landlord to know the story and they came up with the very same information from the landlord.
We opted to allow Syliviah stay with other kids in the orphanage and now she is ever smiling for the provision she gets and the love in the orphanage facility. She has hope of finishing school and she has a passion of becoming a teacher by the grace of God.
