Susan Ithungu, a teenager who was abused because of her Christian faith, began a new school term recently. Susan suffered permanent damage to her legs as a result of being kept in a tiny room for three months by her father.
After multiple surgeries and a year in the hospital, she is now able to walk with crutches. Though she’s 15, Susan will be studying at the fourth-grade level because she is so far behind her classmates. An older Christian woman and a pastor are taking care of Susan. Despite the challenges she faces, Susan moved her things into the school with a broad smile. ‘Thank you for your love, care, and help for me,’ she wrote. ‘I am happy to have friends that God has sent to help me.’
