Chrisandra has been my friend for forever it seems like. One of my favorite parts of the week was always walking to her neighborhood (she lives in the governmental housing down by the airport), chatting with her, catching up, learning about her life, and praying with her.
So many would wonder how the girl does it.....17 now with 2 small boys. 3 neighbor kids orphaned by AIDS that are often living with her. A 10 by 10 foot home. Having a mother who was always drunk and still trying to keep others safe from her abuse. And yet....never has she complained. And she is always smiling.
When at first she wanted to start taking classes to learn about becoming a Christian, after a month of study she said leaving the night life of partying was too hard. Living with her boyfriend and the life she was living didn't line up with what God talked about. So, she said it was too much. Then, after much prayer and crying hard......she came to Brice and said......"I'm ready to live for Christ!"
Love this sister!
