Today, Bea exudes a spiritual maturity far beyond her years. She goes to church for prayer meetings on Friday evenings, dawn prayers and Compassion activities all day on Saturdays, and worship and fellowship on Sundays. At school, she looks for opportunities to share the gospel with other students.
“I’m keeping myself busy for God because that makes me happy,” Bea says.
And to top it off, Bea’s father finds peace knowing that his daughter is growing closer to God — so much so that it encourages him to do the same! Following his daughter’s example, Dax attends a Bible study with 80 other inmates in prison.
Through the spiritual care she receives at the Compassion center and her personal spiritual maturity, Bea’s life is changed forever — for eternity!
“I really am happy when I think of the Lord,” Bea says. “Jesus is the glue that holds our family together. … The only thing really that could make me sad is when I think that my father is in prison. But when I think again, I become happy because there, he is not doing drugs anymore and he goes to Bible study.”
Bea and her mother pray for Dax’s release. When that happens, says Bea, “The first thing I would like to do is to go to church with my father. Then I will really be the happiest girl at church.”
