Sponsorship Transforms Lives
2013 Children's Project: ONEChild to One Child
This year children in VBS learned about the needs of children in places like South Asia, the Philippines, Ethiopia, and Haiti, and how sponsorship can help them attend school, get medical care, and receive food (often their only meal of the day). They also found out that these kids regularly hear how special they are and how much Jesus loves them.
We received one letter from a church in Alabama:
Dear Mission to the World,
We so appreciate the opportunity during VBS to highlight and focus on missions, especially mercy missions. It is a delight to see the love and compassion that our children have developed for other children around the world through this annual project and we thank you for the opportunity to have our children participate!
First Presbyterian Church
P.S. Our check will be arriving there soon. We are giving the adults the opportunity to collect a few more dollars for the cause.
VBS children enjoyed writing the sponsored children, sharing pictures and drawings about life here in America.
And the sponsored children wrote back!
As part of ONEChild to One Child, children in many different countries learned about each other this summer. A huge thanks to all of the children and churches that participated and helped provide school supplies and uniforms for those without.
UPDATE: So far ONEChild to One Child has raised close to $4,000 to provide uniforms and school supplies for children around the world, but more are needed! The project remains available to churches for teaching children about needs around the world, and donations are still being accepted to Project #96021.
