What impact does sponsoring a child really have? It seems like a difficult question, doesn’t it? Sponsors don’t have control over the outcome, but ideally, sponsors give from their hearts with a deep desire to reach out and bring hope to a child, regardless of how that child will respond.
James is a beautiful example of what hope can do for a child who has faced unimaginable loss. Early on in his life, his father abandoned him and his three siblings. Then, when his mother remarried, she left the children with their aging grandmother. For James, the future seemed impossible, especially when it came to pursuing an education.
Then, in 2007, James’ life was changed when he was sponsored and joined Testimony School. He is now attending Secondary School with hopes to become a doctor one day.
Today, James rejoices over the many blessings in his life. Through Hope Africa Child Sponsorship and God’s grace, he gained the knowledge of God, his Creator and Jesus, his Savior. He has hope not only for a better future in this life, but also in the life to come.
The sacrifices James’ sponsor has made for him and his family have gone above and beyond regular monthly sponsorship. His sponsor has purchased goats and even a cow for them, providing a way for James’ grandmother to support herself and the children.
One sponsor gave a future to James by giving from her heart. Is your heart pulling you to bring hope to a child? Visit www.hopeafricakids.com today to learn more!
