A friend in Mtwara offers this update on one of the children from the Compassion International Student Center where Missio members sponsor more than 100 children. 

She is Asha Kuwala. She has ten years old. She is the only child to her parents. She is dreaming about being a nurse. English is her favorite subject. Her Father is a local carpenter who makes chairs. Her mother is a fish monger, taking fish from the docks, roasting them, and then selling.
