Remember “Help William Walk”?

  Help William Walk…4 Years Later In 2010, 5-year-old William asked his mother, “Why do other children walk on the bottoms of their feet? What did you do to me?” When she told him that it was God who did it, not her, William said, “Then please tell God to fix me.” Many of you may remember William’s story. Healing seemed like a distant dream for the common clubbed feet deformity in Zambia. When his story was told, believers back in the states could do nothing but act.  Over the span of several months, God’s people were moved to action. Connections were made, doctors were contacted, money was raised and eventually William had corrective surgery on both feet, allowing him to not only walk, but run and play!

Teacher’s Influence Changes a Life {Lifesong Zambia}

 Please enjoy this update from Shane McBride, Lifesong Zambia Director… Last month, Lifesong School opened it’s doors to the new 2014 school year. We brought in 28 of the cutest 5 year olds and about 10 older children (mostly double orphans). Due to life circumstances, these older kids have not had constant schooling. Teacher Osward is tasked with filling in the years of educational gaps and giving these children their last chance in the education system. Teacher Osward hopes, over the course of 9 months of instruction, he can build into and reach their hearts and minds while unlocking their learning potential and changing their lives. Teacher Osward was recently told a story about one of our older staff, Teacher Majer…  Last year, Teacher Majer had a difficult job. When he started the school year, he had 49 students in his class. WOW, 49 kids! How can one connect with … Continue reading
