Testimonials - Lives Impacted
Hello my name is Perla, I am 15 years old and I lived with my mother until she passed away. She passed away when I was 9 years old, and then I went to live with my sister. While I was living with my sister, I was studying but something happened, my brother-in-law tried to abuse me. I told my sister, but she didn’t believe me and she told me to go live with my dad. I went to live with my dad, but he didn’t have any money for me to continue studying.
I wanted to continue to go to school and study, so I decided to leave my father’s house and went to ask DIF, The Department of Child Protective services in Mexico, for help. They were able to help me, and sent me to an all girls home. While I was in the all girls home, I was mistreated and mentioned it to the managers of the home, although they ignored me. So, I ran away from the all girls home. During that time, Omega was helping me and DIF called her and told her that I had run away.
A little time afterwards, I went back to DIF to ask for help again because I wanted to continue to study and have a safe environment, and they were able to help me. They found a foster family for me, and I spent 4 months with them while DIF was finding a home for me.
Later, I received the news that there was a spot for me in a home in Monterrey, and I thank God I am living at this home now. I am attending school and would like to become an architect. I know that everything is possible in this life, but it is up to me if I want to accept the opportunities given to me.
Thanks to all the people who supported me, I can do everything in Christ who strengthens me Philippians 4:13.
