Sponsorship Transforms Lives
I Thank God I Have You
MTW’s ONEChild sponsored children write letters to their sponsors. Letters about school. Letters about their families. Letters about their interests and letters about holidays.
You might wonder how kids feel about being sponsored. Do they feel exploited, embarrassed or even sad? How do the parents react? We thought you might like to hear, in their own words, what some of the letters from sponsored children and families say:
“When I grow up, I want to help people like you do”
“I treasure the opportunity to study. I know that not all children are studying because their families cannot afford their studies. I thank God I have you, who are always willing to support me, especially in my studies. I really appreciate it and I pray that someday I can also help other children...”
“I would like you to let you know that I will remember you in my prayers.”
“Don’t be courage-less, be courageous in what you have be doing for me. My parents are so grateful for your sponsorship!”
One mother wrote in thanks that her son “has everything that
he needs for the New Year because of sponsorship.”
Sponsorship really does change lives. Children receive education, food, basic medical care and hear about Jesus, all of which might be close to impossible without sponsorship.
We can't change the whole world, but we all
can help at least one child. Sponsor a child
