Hello everyone, I'm known as Ester! I'm so glad you are interested in knowing more about me.


Here is a younger picture of me so you can see how much I've grown

Birthdate: April 7, 2013 

Since: November 10, 2018

"Ester was very malnourished and sad when she arrived at the center; she didn’t use to say a word. Her mother was not providing food or medicine for her. Now, Ester talks, sings, and plays. She is two years younger than her sister Telma "Mãe" who also lives with us; they look like twins. In February of this year, she started elementary school.

Sibling Love


Please pray for Ester’s health, it has improved immensely but she still coughs every now and then. Pray also for Ester's mom to be more responsible with herself and her health. 


We praise the Lord for the big improvements in Ester’s health and in her emotional life. She is now happy and already in primary school.
