This is Julito’s story.
Julito grew up at the garbage dump for one of the largest cities in the Philippines. We have sponsored Julito for several years and watched him grow up into a fine young man. At one time, he was not sure he could finish even elementary school. Now he is soon to graduate with a degree in electrical engineering. In fact, he has already been a big help to several members of his church, as well as working on the electrical systems of a new church building.
We first began to sponsor Julito because his father, who was sick with tuberculosis, could not work, so the family was in serious need and Julito could not go to school because they could not pay the required fees or even buy school supplies. Now Julito is helping others. He is active in his church and plays the guitar on the praise team.
We are proud of Julito for his hard work and his accomplishments. He is worthy of the investment from his sponsor, his pastor and others who have helped him and encouraged him along the way. When we think of what could have happened to this talented young man, if someone had not made the decision to sponsor a child in desperate need, it makes us more thankful for all the sponsors who make miracles happen, miracles that change lives for eternity.
