Global Outreach Sponsorship Coordinator, Ashleigh Fields, shares information in this month’s newsletter regarding her recent trip to Congo as well as new items of interest to Global Outreach partners.
This past July, our mission team had the opportunity to distribute sponsor letters to each of the 57 orphans at Congo for Christ Center(CCC) for the very first time. We instructed the children not to open their letters until we finished passing them all out.
They wiggled anxiously in their seats with excitement as one by one each child recevied their letter.
They wiggled anxiously in their seats with excitement as one by one each child received their letter. Some held their envelope up to the light trying to sneak-a-peek while others kissed their envelope. Once they opened the envelopes, an overwhelming feeling of joy and gratitude filled the atmosphere. They read. They grinned, They cried. They danced. They thanked us repeatedly. These orphans were very aware that someone on the other side of the world was investing in them through prayers and finances.

These letters put a face, a name and a voice to that someone. On that day, a strong connection was made as those personal letters expressed love and encouragement to each orphan. When you become a sponsor, you become more than a prayer lifter and a financial giver, you become part of their heart...to them, you are family.

We join Ashleigh in expressing our thanks and appreciation to all the sponsors who wrote notes and sent pictures for the children. The sponsorship program provides a significant portion of the funding for the orphans in Congo, but we also want to express our appreciation to all who contribute in so many ways for the ongoing care, feeding, housing, clothing, education and Biblical training of hundreds of orphans in India, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines as well as Congo. Your love and generosity impacts these precious children now and for eternity.
