Sponsorship Journey: Kirsty-Rhe's Story
We were blessed to have Kirsty-Rhe as our incredible intern this past Summer. Her time spent in our Makerere project site not only impacted the children around her, but her own heart! Read about how her time as an intern lead her on a journey of child sponsorship.
Child sponsorship is very special to me because I actually met my sponsor child while interning in Uganda. He wasn’t yet in the program but the Lord led me to take a leap of faith and to put Mark into school and in the program! Getting to build a relationship with not only him but his three other siblings and mom has made it even more special to me. God has used Mark to work in my heart! The love I have for this boy I can only imagine is a snippet if how much the Lord loves me and its incredible getting to experience the Lord’s faithfulness through sponsoring Mark. Mark had been out of school for 3 or 4 years when i first met him and I remember my first impression was that he looked so hopeless. The day we fought for him to get into school again, I still remember how the hope and joy just started taking over again and I literally saw this boy come back to life again because someone took a leap of faith for him. It was incredible getting to share Christ with him and to see how he became so much more active! Those kids feels so forgotten and hopeless and to me the least i could do was give. Everything I have was given to me and the Lord blessed me with, how can i not turn around and allow the Lord to use me to bless someone else.
