"Melvia is such a lovely child, she is shy but adorable. She used to live on the streets with her mom. When the mother died, Social Welfare brought Melvia to live with us. We don’t have any information about her father. Melvia is a healthy little girl in the 2nd grade. She attends a Christian school here in the neighborhood and has lots of friends there."

Prayer:

Please pray for Melvia's protection and to overcome her shyness. If she wants to be a famous singer she has to overcome shyness.

We praise the Lord for Melvia opening up more, expressing more,  and now praying in front of others.
