Kathy was blessed by this group of sponsored young people (shown in the picture below) who are in high school and college. Most of them have been sponsored through Fullness In Christ Ministries (FCM) since elementary school. At the time that they were sponsored, they were hungry and dirty, living (or surviving) in garbage dumps. They were so poor they could not go to school. Just look at them now! We are so proud of them.
The time came when they were sponsored and life changed for them. They went to school. They ate better food and more often so they were healthier and more alert in school. They could now dream of a future that did not include scavenging through trash for things to sell or use. Today they are preparing to be teachers, computer technicians, nurses and caretakers and other professionals. We are VERY proud of them.
All this was made possible by gifts from Partners, Sponsors and Friends who opened their hearts to help these young people.
There are many children at the garbage site who still cannot go to school because they are unable to pay the required fees and buy the necessary school supplies and clothing. If they don’t get an education, they will likely repeat the cycle and continue to live as trash scavengers. Sponsors provide funds for education, nutrition, pastoral care and more. Lives are changed by sponsors.
It is truly amazing what even a small investment of $30 a month per child will make. Pray about it. If God speaks to you about making a difference for a child, you can sign up to become a sponsor at Fullness in Christ Ministries’ web site at FullnessInChristMinistries.org.
