WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan – Discussing Divena and her brother, spend days playing in the mud, now dreams of a bright future through the opportunities Bridge of Hope gave.
The tarp walls of Divena’s home could not contain the sound of her mom and dad’s constant arguments. When her mother suddenly left to be with another man, the house fell silent. Three-year-old Divena and her older brother never saw their mother again.
Divena’s father, a truck driver, left the children home alone for weeks at a time because of his job. Divena’s elderly grandmother intervened when she saw her and her brother starving during these long stretches on their own. She eked out a meager livelihood for the three of them, but two years later, her age and health rendered her incapable of caring for her grandchildren—and they were left alone once more in their father’s hut, only seeing their father between driving jobs.
