Greetings to you, in the precious name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, from Kisoro, Uganda.
My name is Joseph Mugisha. I am the pastor of the Compassion Child Sponsorship Program at our Kashinge Child Development Center that ministers to your sponsored child. I am also thankful to you for your goodness to your sponsored child. Thank you for the way you have shared your life and for your support, prayers and above all love.
I pray that the almighty God will richly bless you. Our ministry is making a big impact in the lives of the children. At the moment we have 247 children. Currently 240 children have sponsors. The other seven are not sponsored and we are prayerfully waiting upon the Lord for the sponsors.
The center at our church is grateful for the children's sponsors. With Compassion's help our church has grown by opening up another church for development of the ministry.
Children are always happy to come to the center at our church because they face negative things in their homes and community. More than that the children have been able to acquire skills like baking, weaving, baskets making and pottery through the help of our center workers. Our center workers are our Christian brothers and sisters in our church. They have really devoted themselves to the children and they truly love them and all the children are known to them by name.
Together with the center workers, we teach the children many things about good behaviors and healthy issues among others. We do always teach them at the center to supplement what they learn in schools. We teach them English, social studies, science, mathematics, religious education and skills. We also conduct them in Bible classes while teaching them the Word of God.
My vision and prayer is to serve the children in particular and the community at large in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am always happy when I see the children and youth alike come to our center and learn.
We always share with them the names of their sponsors and when they receive letters and photos they become extremely happy and this makes them feel very special, valued and loved.
Your personal support is so special to us. Please continue to pray for your sponsored child. And also pray for us here at the center as we work to serve these children to help them know Jesus Christ and grow in good health.
May our almighty Savior grant you much blessings.
