Mayson is a happy little nine year old from the small village of Katanmòt near Galette Chambon. He lives with his parents and sister. They are a farming family and are dependent upon the rain to have crops. He was lucky to have been able to go to school this year, but he never knows if his parents will be able to afford it or not. His little sister already has a sponsor, so she knows she can go to school. Mayson wishes he had a sponsor because he wouldn’t have to worry about paying for school and he would know that someone in the US is praying for him. When Mayson is not in school, he loves to play soccer with his friends. His favorite subject is Creole and when he grows up, he wants to become a mason and build houses.
