Her mother died during childbirth. She and her siblings left with nothing, but God had a plan. Meet Geurtiana.
In 2015, a little girl named Geurtiana was welcomed into the Myan Children’s Village.
Several years ago, one of the local Haitian pastors with whom we have a relationship was asked to perform a funeral for a woman who had died during childbirth. He agreed to do so. We learned that the woman had three other children who were left with nothing. At that time, the girls were sent to live with a relative who could not take care of even their most basic needs. It was clear that Guertiana and her sisters needed a loving home. This local pastor connected these precious girls to our Coreluv staff who brought them to the Coreluv Children’s Village. Now, they have a loving home, and their needs are being met!
Geurtiana is all smiles and giggles! She is the youngest of the three siblings. Her birthday is January 1, 2009. She has the happiest countenance that seems to be contagious to all the other children and staff members in the orphanage. We trust and believe that God has great plans for Guertiana and that she will share the joy and love of Christ with everyone she encounters throughout her life.
If you would like to help Geurtiana, her siblings and others just like her, you can! Defending the Orphan goes beyond one day, one week, one month, even beyond one year. It is a daily call to care for and pray for these children. We could NOT do what we do without each and every one of our partners. It takes all of us together to make a difference in the lives of these children, daily providing their six basic needs of clean water, proper food, healthcare, education, job skills and Christ-centered loving home. If you are not already an Orphan Care Partner, you can say yes and become one today by visiting our Orphan Care Partnership Page. Thank you.
