We’re counting down to Mother’s Day. The gift I ordered my mom is headed her way and we shipped my mother-in-law’s gift today. My seven year old David has already whispered to his daddy he wants to take me to Red Robin. My goal for the day is to enjoy my family and serve them well.
Gospel for Asia has a goal for Mother’s Day too. They want to see 250 children sponsored through their Bridge of Hope program. There have been 165 kids sponsored so far, and there’s still time for you to help!
Here’s one of the stories Gospel for Asia shares:
Gayana was only twenty when her husband died, leaving her and their young son, Vikranta, alone in the world. Gayana despaired as she wondered how she would provide for Vikranta. She was no longer welcome at her in-laws home, and her elderly parents were unable to support her.
Having nowhere else to go, Gayana moved in with one of her sisters. She was so distressed over her situation that she stopped eating and sank into a deep depression.
Then a neighbor told her about a nearby Gospel for Asia Bridge of Hope center, a place that offered help to poor children. Gayana visited the center and shared her desperate story with the director. To Gayana’s great joy and relief, Vikranta was enrolled in Bridge of Hope immediately.
Bridge of Hope Has the Answer
Bridge of Hope provided Vikranta with everything he needed to attend and thrive at school. Although Gayana found work as a daily wage laborer, she earns only about a dollar a day. Without Bridge of Hope, she would never have been able to provide her son with the education he is receiving. Gayana is happy and grateful that her son has been given a chance—a chance that many Asian mothers only dream of their children having.
For just $35 a month, you can provide a mother with the hope she is longing for. Her child will receive
- a daily nutritious meal.
- the message of Jesus’ love.
- a quality education.
- a better life than she had.
