Different December and the Now Needs of children like OkweraRich Stigall
Remembering the first Christmas, we celebrate one child who changed the world. In His Spirit, this Christmas we give thanks for the opportunity to change the world, one child at a time. Recently GO Africa’s Executive Director, Alison Barfoot, wrote to share about a young man whose life has been changed at the Father’s House in Gulu, Uganda:
“Okwera, who is in primary seven, told me that he now feels so good, loved and cared for. He last felt loved before his mother passed on. He says that while at their home, what his father knows is abusing them,” she explained.
Prior to coming to the Father’s House, Okwera would make bricks during the holidays to sell in order to collect the fees for the next school term. He is happy that now the only task he has is to read and concentrate, because he doesn’t have to worry about school fees, medical needs, or food.
He feels that he can now be cared for, and his basic needs provided for. He has many children at the Father’s House whom he plays with, and makes him to forget about what he went through. At school, when I contacted his teachers, they said he is a very committed child and they have high hopes of him getting the top grade in the coming examination.
This Christmas, we invite you to invest in the Now Needs for children like Okwera. Your gift supports daily, life-care costs. It funds social workers who help girls and boys who have been abused and abandoned. It provides school fees so children can attend school. It brings them into the local church family and introduces them to the hope of life with Jesus.
Thanks to your generosity this December, the lives of children in need of family all over the world are different, better, blessed. Thank you for investing in their lives. It’s a privilege to care for them with you.
Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas,
Your GO Project Family
