Do you remember when you discovered your calling to work with children like those at New Hope?
New Hope Children has captured my heart. I guess if I had to say when, it would be the moment I stepped foot in the center. I knew this experience with these children was something much greater than me.
The children at the center, once considered the lowest of the low in their communities, stood there before me full of joy and expectation. We were there to provide a week full of camp activities that would allow them to just be kids. They had only known a life in which their focus was firmly set on what to eat, where to sleep, and how to survive. They came from a past full of rejection, abandonment, and poverty at a time when most of us were playing with dolls and racing cars. Playing parachute games and having three legged races weren't a part of their daily routine.
For one week we played, learned about emotional intelligence, and sang praises to God for what we had. They showed gratitude and compassion for everything we did. Their spirits soared and not one of them complained the entire time.
I went back the next year and plan to go again this year. Seeing the growth and joy these kids have, beyond all they've suffered has changed my life. New Hope Children is committed to giving our children the tools they need to change the trajectory of their lives.
In order to continue to build the hopes of our young heroes we rely on the monthly support of our donors. For every child we have there are dozens more on the same streets we rescued them from. We have the space to take on more children, we just need the resources to do it. This is where your help is so valuable.
We have recently taken on one of our youngest heroes, her name is Swena and she was just two years old when we found her. If you could image the joy you would feel knowing that your monthly donation helped a child like Swena go to school for the first time. Just take a moment to think about the joy it would bring to know that she felt security for the first time in her young life, because your donation allowed us to continue to provide for her.
This is exactly what happens in the life of one of our children when someone like you becomes a monthly donor. Take a moment and get to know some of our heroes. Browse our website and see the smiles on their faces. You have the opportunity to join New Hope Children in bringing hope into the lives of God's most precious. What you are being called to do? Will you go out and do it?
This is what we ask; pray for these beautiful children, go to our website and sign up to volunteer with us, or sign up to go on one of our trips to Kenya. Being called is one thing, now ask yourself how you will answer that call?
