THE FOLLOWING LETTER MAY BE DISTURBING TO SOME READERS. THIS STORY IS REAL.
Hi, my name is Renan*, I’m 10 years old, and me and my 4 siblings go to Life Impact’s Prevention Project. My family has 7 people and we all live In a house of one room only. We all have different fathers, but mine ran away a long time ago… He doesn’t speak to me very often, I feel very lonely and sad without him. Because of all the problems I had throughout my life, I had trouble speaking (I stuttered too much), I couldn’t read or write, and I could never get along with my friends. After I joined Life Impact, our teachers helped me learn how to read and write, and now I don’t stutter anymore. I love my friends and my teachers from the project! Every now and then the teachers from the project visit my house, and they talk to my family and minister to us. We also get a food basket every month because my siblings and I never skip classes! Here, I have learned that God Is my father and that with Him I’m never alone.
