NARRATOR: Milani loved going to the daycare center.

But her dad couldn't find work; and when her mom lost her job

as a street sweeper, they couldn't afford the school fees

anymore.

MILANI'S MOM THROUGH INTERPRETER:

Milani packed her dolls and crayons

and pretend that she was going to the daycare.

And I would explain that I didn't have the money

to send her there.

Then she would cry.

It was a difficult time for all of us.

NARRATOR: To make matters worse, ever since Milani was a baby,

she had asthma.

It was so bad, she wound up in the hospital at least

twice a month.

Her parents feared for her life, but Milani just

wanted to be like the other kids.

MILANI THROUGH INTERPRETER: I can't play and run

like other children because when I do, my chest hurts.

NARRATOR: One day when Milani and her mom were getting water,

one of our social workers spotted them and invited Milani

to come to Life Child, a ministry supported

by CBN's Orphan's Promise.

(SINGING) Fishing for Jesus everywhere.

MILANI THROUGH INTERPRETER: This is my favorite place

in the whole world.

I love learning new things.

I can count to 30 and even write my name.

I love playing with my new friends.

We learn about Jesus, and I accepted him into my heart.

I know that Jesus loves me, and I love him this much.

MILANI'S MOM THROUGH INTERPRETER:

Now when times are hard, Milani's

the one who says, Mommy, let us pray.

That's something we never did before.

NARRATOR: They prayed for Milani's father

to find a good job, and soon a door

opened for him to start working as a delivery man for a bakery.

MILANI'S MOM THROUGH INTERPRETER:

I prayed with Milani about her asthma,

and she is much better now.

It is the prayer that healed her.

It's been more than six months with no incidents.

MILANI THROUGH INTERPRETER: I can finally run and play

with my friends.

I know Jesus healed me.

I am so happy.

Thank you, CBN.
