31 Kids in 31 Days

Sponsor a child…change of life. It’s easy to underestimate the impact sponsorship has on a child. Not only are basic needs (such as food, clothing, shelter) met, but also a sense of belonging is given that money can’t buy. Sponsorship speaks “YOU MATTER TO ME.” to a child who is longing for love from a family, security and hope for a future.  This month, I hope you join in helping us find 31 sponsors in 31 days! Each day, we will feature a child from one of our orphan care initiatives that does not yet have a sponsor. Will you join us in advocating for these children? Today, we’re introducing Lourdes, a 10th grade student from Plan Escalon in Honduras. Ask the Lord what you can do today to ensure she has a sponsor.

So Much More Than Money {Lifesong Liberia}

Please enjoy this update from Carla Cornell, Lifesong Liberia Child Sponsor, as she shares thoughts from her recent trip to Liberia to meet their sponsor children … Their faces are more real now. We can see their bright eyes and hear their voices in the letters they write back to us. We can picture them doing their homework under the trees behind the orphanage. See them playing soccer and cheering for their school. Remember their songs and dramas. And we can feel their hugs. Meeting Thomas, Sharine and Prince was something we had been picturing for months and to finally feel those arms around us was a priceless, God-given moment. It was then we realized that sponsoring a child can be so much more than just sending money. It can be an opportunity to open our hearts and share the love we so often take for granted with a child … Continue reading
