Happy Birthday Chana
Chana (Roxana) is a little girl who comes to our Saturday morning kids club and Sunday school class every week without fail. Her grandmother looks after her and we know her well since her grandmother sells fruit from her fruitbarrow which is positioned at the bridge ( El Puente) next to our church.When she is not at school or at our church Chana spends all day on the street with her grandmother. She lives with her grandmother , father and his partner but her father is barely involved in her care. This morning she told her father it was her 5th birthday today , he told her that he didn't care and that it didn't matter! Carla in the picture with Chana , runs our childrens' ministry she asked if we could do something to celebrate her birthday and so Scott and Carla and Jessica chose a small gift for her , here she is in the photo opening her only birthday present !
