Honor Mom and Rescue a Child in Asia
Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 11th (tomorrow). I love being a mom and I am truly a blessed mom. I'm very thankful for my three delightful blessings from God! I am also thankful for my mom whom I still pray that she will totally surrender her life to Christ. As you celebrate this Mother's Day, so many mothers and children are suffering in Asia. They struggle to survive and they are desperate for hope. Because of poverty, more than 20 million children are trapped in child labor and prostitution in order to support their family. Gospel for Asia's Bridge of Hope is making a difference in Asia by providing food, education, medical care, Christ's love, and the Gospel to the children. Often their families have put their faith in Jesus as a result.
It only takes $35 a month to give a child everything he/she needs--school supplies, a daily meal, medical checkups and more--to attend a Bridge of Hope Center. 100% of your sponsorship is sent to the field to support your child. Nothing is taken out for administrative expenses. Gospel for Asia hopes to see 2,000 Bridge of Hope children sponsored by Mother's Day. Would you please consider sponsoring a child today in honor of your mom? You can make an eternal impact that lasts! You get to be an artisan of hope to these children and mothers in need. What a unique and beautiful gift given in honor of Mom! You'll be making your mom smile and another mom in Asia smile :). Please visit www.gfa.org/mom/ or www.gfa.org/sponsorachild/mothers-day/.
When you sponsor a child, you'll receive a packet including your child’s photo and letter-writing materials. You can correspond directly with your child. I'd like to introduce you to our sponsored child, Rohan. He is 10 years old and lives in India. Below are his picture, his latest letter, and coloring page that we received. We're always excited to hear from him and we keep him & his family in our prayers. Let's rescue these children in need, show them that their Heavenly Father deeply loves & cares for them, and help them find eternal hope in Christ!
“As we celebrate Mother’s Day and thank God for the influence of our mothers and wives, please remember the millions of children and mothers who have never heard of Jesus, [the One] who will provide for them.” ~K.P. Yohannan
