I have a new friend I’d like you to pray for. She is a mall rat.
She is 17 years old, has a lip ring, and is somewhat simple minded. She has a sweet, gentle spirit. She begs me for free smoothies everytime I see her. She has been in her 20-something sister’s care since her sister was old enough to leave foster care. They were placed in foster care after being abused by their real parents. Her mother once kicked her hard enough while wearing boots to break a bone in her back. She hangs out at the mall for hours at a time while she waits on her sister to get off work.
She has touched my heart.
Please pray that she’ll come to know Christ. Pray that God will open a door for me to share Jesus with her.
Also, let me know if you are aware of a place that might hire her for an entry level job. It needs to be a backroom type of job but I think she would be an honest, hard worker.
