Sponsorship pulled on our hearts

Sponsorship pulled on their hearts

Written by Vicki Spencer, Child Sponsor and Mission Trip Participant

It pulled on our hearts.

Sponsorship had been something pulling on my husband's and my heart for a while now, but we were unsure of how it all worked.

We knew our church had opportunities for sponsorship in several countries but how do you pick?  

After much consideration and prayer we felt drawn to the Navajo people in Winslow, Arizona.

We knew that Lifeline’s Red Sands Christian School in the community had relocated and that there were several projects at the new building that needed to be completed. We also knew that the community was struggling due to the economy.

The pulling continued…but in a different way.

Shortly after finishing our sponsorship paperwork we were notified that our church was going on a mission trip to Winslow.

We felt pulled to meet our sponsored child, to help with projects around his school, and to bring the Word of God to His community.

Our thought was "we are going to help a community in need" but little did we know how much we would be touched by the community, staff, and children. 

We came home exhausted and fulfilled!

Meeting our sponsored child was amazing. We learned about his family, his dreams, and his love for God. He is full of joy and a delight. We felt like we had known him for a very long time even though we had just met. He loved hearing about our children and grandchildren at home. 

Our next visit can't come soon enough.

A Christian foundation for his life is being laid down by the Word of God and we are grateful to be a part of it.

We pray that he always has joy and the love of God in his heart.

Go meet your sponsored child!
