Welcome Milda

I attend a small group attached to my church and we've been looking at poverty this month. We've been doing the No Ceiling to Hope DVD course. I've been adding a Compassion section to the end of each session. No-one wanted to sponsor any of the Compassion Sunday children I had packets for (though one is thinking about it). Instead the group decided to co-sponsor an older child. There were none on the UK website tonight, so we've picked to sponsor 18 year-old Milda from Indonesia through Michelle's link at Blogging from the Boonies from the US site instead.

Name: Milda Fariyanti
Birthday: November 17, 1993
Age: 18
Gender: Female
Region: Asia
Country: Indonesia
Program: Eliezer Student Center

Personal and Family Information:
Milda makes her home with her father and her mother. Washing clothes, making beds and cleaning are her household duties. Her father is sometimes employed as a laborer and her mother maintains the home. Milda is not presently attending school. Playing a musical instrument, listening to music and reading are her favorite activities. She also attends youth group regularly. Because of your sponsorship, Milda will have new opportunities to learn and grow physically, mentally, and spiritually. Thank you for your concern and prayers.

Milda lives in the coastal community of Phailus, home to approximately 15,100 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, wood walls and tile roofs. The most commonly spoken languages are Indonesian and Javanese.
The regional diet consists of fish and rice. Common health problems in this area include dysentery, tuberculosis, lung problems and skin diseases. Half of the adults in Phailus are unemployed but some work as fishermen or day labourers and earn the equivalent of $11 per month. This community has electricity but need affordable education and vocational centres.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Eliezer Student Center to provide Milda with Bible teaching, nutritious meals, vitamins, medical exams, health instruction, opportunities for community service, field trip, tuition, school equipment, tutoring and vocational training. The center staff will also provide educational seminars for the parents or guardians of Milda.
