Below: The YouTube Video titled, "Jessica's Story ... Dick Rutgers and Refugio de Esperanza [Hope Haven Guatemala]."
This is Jessica's Story.
Jessica is one of six children, her mother is a widow.
Jessica has Cerebral Palsy.
Jessica was taken to Hope Haven Guatemala (Refugio de Esperanza de Guatemala),
where Mark Richard's organization provides wheelchairs to disabled people who otherwise must crawl all their lives.

Dick Rutgers was at Hope Haven Guatemala when Jessica appeared.
The Lord touched Dick's heart.
This story shows the result.
Dick saw a young girl, only six years old and weighing only sixteen (16) pounds.
He had to do something, sometimes we simply cannot walk away.
Dick shared Jessica's Story with pictures on his website, Ref: http://blog.dickrutgers.com/ [Will open in a new browser window.]
KOMU-TV in Columbia, Missouri produced a television special about Hope Haven Guatemala.
The video portion of this production is excerpted from that TV special.
I was struck by the images and video.
You will be too.
Jessica's Story is a bitter but sweet story ... sad and happy.
Jessica's eyes tell the story.
Look into her eyes, perhaps Our Father will touch you too.
