At a very young age, Gemma Imperial experienced rejection and pain that most hope to never go through. Her young mother, having no husband, left Gemma and her five siblings with an uncle, so she could go overseas to work. Gemma never saw or heard from her mother again.
Young Gemma happy
to be at FTC
After five months of living with her uncle, the social services of the Philippines found that Gemma was being abused. Thankfully she was immediately taken away from her uncle, and placed in a social services center until they found Face the Children (FTC). Gemma was brought to FTC in March of 2009 at the age of eight. Thank God that she has enjoyed a place of love and safety for nearly two years.
Gemma enjoys her
schooling at FCA
Gemma has had struggles along the way, but through the oversight of FTC staff and mentors she has learned and grown much. Now at age eleven, Gemma attends Frontline Christian Academy and is in grade three. She enjoys dancing with God's Force Junior Dance Team and, when she grows up, she wants to be a school administrator. Most importantly, she loves the Lord and wants her friends to know God too.
When you think of WHY you work with or support Frontline, remember Gemma Imperial; a beautiful girl whose' life has been changed, and who now sees a future of dignity and hopefulness.
