Little Girl By April Harrison
I nearly lost it yesterday morning during a presentation given at my church about an organization that is saving the lives of little girls.
I am LONGING to me a momma someday and I just couldn't bear hearing the details of the pain and heartache that these little girls are experiencing on a daily basis.
They should be playing, painting their toenails, dressing-up, giggling, chasing cute boys, but instead, they are being turned into child prostitutes, some as young as 8 or 10 years old.
Young American girls are being raped daily for profit in communities we call home. Why? Because there are adults who demand to have sex with our children. This physical, mental, emotional and spiritual trauma often leaves children broken and scarred for life. Therapeutic services and residential programs are critical for many young girls’ survival, rehabilitation and restoration. (Excerpt taken from livingwaterforgirls.org)
Living Water is their heaven on earth. It is a place that they will hear "You are beautiful" and where Jesus will say to them, "You are safe, and take refuge in me."
As an interior designer, I am compelled to beautify the lives and spaces of my clients and have been made clear that it is also to help beatify the lives and surroundings of these precious little girls.
It is a big challenge, but with your help, and God's power, we can do HUGE things!
Living Water for Girls is in need of a new vocational school so that these young women will have a place to study after high school, one that is safe and secure. With God's power, they have already aquired a building, furniture, etc., but are needing to have the space designed so that it is representative of the beauty these girls have long deserved.
I am trying to put together a team of interior designers and talented artists to assist and donate our time to creating the "beauty" inside this school.

Together, we can help take the evil out of these precious little girls lives and begin to truly save them!
