Romaine is one of our best students. This trimester she finished in the top of her class. She loves to learn and study. She says she loves school because she is learning and progressing. She has been at the school for six years and this will be her last year. She is very smart and plans to progress to the local middle school.
Romaine became blind when she was one year old. She believes her uncle cursed her because he didn’t want her to succeed. This is a common theme from the students here. Many believe they have been cursed by enemies and it is not uncommon for people to curse each other using the local witch doctor.
Romaine accepted Christ in 2012 here at the Village of Light with a former chaplain, Mr. Woaku. Before coming to the Village of Light she attended Catholic mass with her family in her town, but she never really understood the Gospel and what it meant for her. Now one of her favorite things to do is lead the girls in praise songs. She is always the leader of the singing and you can count on Romaine to lead the students in a song in most any and every situation!
Ways you can pray for Romaine: Her father is ill and cannot work. Pray for provision for her family. She also asks that you pray for her to have success after she completes school and can obtain a good job.
