Birthday: March 1, 2009 Sponsorship #: 2016-00-274JM

Lutchina is the daughter of one of our local pastors and principal of one of our sponsored elementary schools. Lutchina is a spunky little 8 year old who loves to play with her friends. She enjoys singing in church and helping her mother around the house. She lives with her parents, three sisters, and three brothers in the village of Cargo near Galette Chambon. She has one brother and one sister who are in the high school and her oldest brother has gone to Brazil to go to school. Although her both of her parents have income, it is still very hard to support a family with seven children on what little they make. Lutchina has been wanting a sponsor mainly because all of her friends have sponsors and she has felt left out. She likes the idea that someone in America is praying for her every day. She is excited that she will now get a uniform made especially for her instead of getting a hand me down from her older sister. She also likes knowing that her parents can help other people by helping other children find sponsors and helping children get a good education.

**ADDITIONAL NOTE: Lutchina’s father, Pastor Joel, died of a heart attack in 2020. He suffered from chronic hypertension. Please remember the family in your prayers.
