October is the time for orphans from Congo for Christ Center (CCC) who have been attending university to return to school for another year of studies. Heritier and Ramazani will begin their third year, while Dekyungu will begin her second year. In addition to these returning students, two more orphans completed secondary school this year and are praying they will be able to attend university. Piyo and Washikala have been accepted and if they are to enter university this year they must start this week.We have received notes of appreciation from each of these students. The following from Ramazani speaks for all of the students:
I greet you in the name of Jesus Christ. I am filled with joy to show my gratitude to God for all that He has done for me. I also thank Pastor Jeremiah for his great vision of helping the hopeless children because it has been of great help in my life. When my Mum and Dad died, I didn’t know that I would one day go to school but through God’s grace I am now in my third year of social sciences at university. I would like to give gratitude to CCC for being good parents and also to Global Outreach and NCC church for all the love they are showing to me. I know and trust that our mighty God will bless you in His own ways. Thank you so much my dear friends for giving all your time and resources to make sure that you prepare me to become a responsible person in my community.
All of the students expressed their appreciation and also amazement that they can attend university. When they were orphaned they struggled just to eat and survive. Now they have great dreams and hopes not only for themselves but to serve their community. Each student needs $1,800 per year in addition to the monthly support from their sponsor. These young men and women depend on your gifts to provide the opportunity to complete their education.
