Missionary Monday - Alina is on Facebook!
Alina was a normal, healthy child. At the age of 10, she started becoming unusually clumsy and it was soon revealed that her spine was deteriorating. She has been diagnosed with "a hemangioma involving the vertebral bodies of the thoracic region." In short, her spine is now a jelly-like substance and she constantly lays in a cast that has to be re-made from time to time for her growing body..... [to read the rest of this story, go to this post].
Alina was just hooked up with internet for the first time this week, and she has joined Facebook. I am normally not a big fan of Facebook for teenagers, but for Alina I think that Facebook can be one of the best things that has ever happened to her. And, this is where YOU, my dear readers, come in...
I would love for Alina to have a showering of attention from those of us who pray for her. Please look her up on Facebook and share some love today! If you write in simple English, she will understand you.
Her name is Alina Shashkevich. [And while you're at it, love on her sister too! She is Tanya Shashkevich.]
