Student Spotlight: Maria Madalito


100_0948

Madalisto is a precious nine year old girl who has survived on the streets now for four years. Maria and her younger sister Mary were orphaned and thus homeless.  It is such a blessing that Maria and Mary have each other to depend on. Maria loves her sister very much. She shows her love by making sure to walk with her as they beg in the streets. Maria is a very bright girl, polite, and is well behaved. We are honored to have Maria at Agape House. We have the incredible privilege of watching her learn, grow, and follow her dreams.

Who is your best friend?

Thokozani Sukali ( see archives for her student spotlight). Maria loves her very much!

What is something that you know about Jesus?

He is the Messiah and Son of God. He has never failed. He makes a way when there is no way. (Amen! Wise beyond her years.)

If you could give a gift to every child in the world, what would it be?

Maria would just go and get the child and live with her. (Maria is the gift!)

Jesus, Maria is delightful. Thank you for her sweet spirit. She loves to learn and is so smart. Jesus, she is hurting because of a lack of a place to call home and parents of I care for her. You see her needs and care about each one. She is especially close to your heart. I ask in your name that her needs would be met in every way. We thank you for your provision, amen.

He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love for the alien by giving him food and clothing.-  Deuteronomy 10:18
