By the time Rodelin was 11, she had led 23 of her friends to know Christ. “She’s no ordinary girl,” says Rema Reyes, director of the Compassion center Rodelin attends. “She’s an agent of transformation.”
Rodelin’s father works as a driver, but his job does not always bring enough money to support the family. But since Rodelin was registered with Compassion’s Child Sponsorship Program in 2009, some of the financial burden has been lifted. Now Rodelin has books, supplies and uniforms to go to school. She discovered how much Jesus loves her, too, and gave her life to Him. She wasn’t alone.
“The most wonderful thing that happened to me was when both of my parents accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior,” says Rodelin. “Life has never been the same.”
Now she believes nothing is impossible — especially becoming a teacher when she’s grown up. Why is she so sure? “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future,’” she says, quoting Jeremiah 29:11. With a Bible in her hand, Rodelin is bringing hope to her community in Jesus’ name.
