Rebecca is a little girl who says she has a desire to become both a nurse and a singer when she gets older. However, life in Uganda is not easy for her family. Her mother stays home to take care of Rebecca, her two older brothers, and her younger sister. Their father works hard as a businessman selling coffee, but he earns very little money and is unable to provide for his family’s physical needs. When you sponsor Rebecca, she will have accesss to educational support, nutritious food, healthcare, and teaching from the Word of God. This could not only impact the life of Rebecca but could also change the lives of her whole family. Thank you for your prayerful consideration!
Masajja Childcare Center
The Masajja Child Development Center is impacting children for Christ. The center partners with a local church where children are encouraged to learn in Sunday School and participate in the youth choir. Staff provide life skills training, nutritious meals, and help with homework. At the center, children also receive medical treatment when needed. Home visits take place so staff can minister to the children’s families. Children are immersed in biblical teaching and discipleship from the center staff as well.
