Birthdate: July 8, 1999
Hello, my name is Jenjira Maryer. My nickname is Jenny. I have been at Breanna's House of Joy since May 2007 and I am from the Akha tribe.
Food: Grilled chicken with sticky rice
Talent: Computer skills
Someday I want to be a Police Woman or teach at the Police Academy.
Jenny lost her father when she was two. Her mother worked in the fields and struggled to support her six children. Jenny came to live at Breanna’s House of Joy in 2007 when she was eight years old. Jenjira was able to hear about Jesus at BHJ. She trusted in God when she was in the 4th grade. Her heart remained open to learn and grow in God. Jenjira said, “I came to BHJ to start second grade. In the village, I helped my family to work in the fields digging the ground and planting corn. My family was very poor with too many children to feed. My big sister and I got to come to BHJ at the same time... I like BHJ a lot. I like going to school. I enjoy math, computer and English. During free time, I like making cards, drawing, and playing the guitar. I had wanted to be in the Thai air force. I joined the Thai ROTC program in my Sophomore year in high school, and I will have to continue in the program in college. I enjoyed playing Cricket with the school team. When I finish high school, I want to study to be a police woman or a teacher at a university. I want to have a good job to be able to support my mother. She is getting older now and is working too hard. Please pray for my family and older brothers because they are still not Thai citizens yet.”
