Edson Pranpin #072 

Birthdate: Jan. 11 2007

I was born with 6 fingers on each hand and 6 toes on each foot and I am cross-eyed. There were 11 of us in my family.  I do not know who my father is, and I was cast out because of my disability and appearance. My family thought evil spirits possessed me. I had to beg for food and had no clothing at all until someone found me and brought me to Place of Hope. I now have new family members that love me very much.  After coming to POH I met Pastor John and he has been my closest friend ever since.  I want him to come and live here with us.  He is like my grandpa.Thanks to Mr. Andre, our father, and his wife, Angie, I am now in school and learning very rapidly. I am also learning about Jesus. We begin our day at school with prayer to Him, and then we sing hymns of praise. I love being a part of this.  When I grow up I want to study and become a pastor like my grandpa, Pastor John.  I know he loves me deeply. Mr. Stonesifer’s granddaughter is my sponsor and pays for all expenses to keep me here and to feed, clothe, and educate me.  I am so thankful to God.
