Mirna is a sweet soul that we have known for a long time, but with whom we’ve only recently reuinited.

We first met Mirna three years ago when she and her sister Edis began visiting our ministry on nights that we served meals. And we got to know and love her even more when she and Edis’s family moved into the building.

We were blessed to have Mirna as part of our first Beach Christmas. Then, following the birth of her baby, she decided to go stay with other family for a while. Mirna has recently returned to the city and is working at a job in the market during the week to provide money to send back to her family.

We have loved having her friendly face back at the building. She is always ready with a cheerful hug and a smile when she returns home from work and is quick to ask us how we are doing.
