As from today many kids will go back to school with their heads raised high and not feeling ashamed of being orphaned. Yes, orphans without anyone to call dad or mum and ask for school books, school shoes etc; But because of your help through the local church, over fifty children in Ndola's Mushili area have been given hope for a bright future. The Church, the body of Christ is demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ through your faithfulness in giving to the cause of orphans in this part of Africa through the ministry of Forgotten Voices International. FVI partners with local churches as they care for the spiritual and physical needs of orphans and widows. We need to know that these forgotten voices' hopes lie in the church's ministry. Never grow weary in doing good! I have personally witnessed the joy in the eyes of these kids; they just spur me to do more for the Lord. We thank you very much for your contribution to this cause; Words alone can never and will never express how much joy you have brought upon these children's lives. The Church has yet again demonstrated its love through your gifts. Indeed, "Every good and perfect gift comes from above..." James 1: 17.
Meet Diness Tembo: eight years and in grade two, yet already orphaned. Imagine her life ahead...will she reach twenty or even, as Ryan, reach thirty years without people like you, who love and care for her future...Tough isn't it? But today, because you have said "yes" to helping orphans in Africa, Diness, and many in her situation, have hope for a future. She may never get to know any of you, but today through your love she has been blessed with a school uniform, shoes, books and pencils. She will eagerly wait for tomorrow morning to go to school with a revived desire because her church cares for her. As the pastor gave her the shoes, her sweet words were; "thank you very much, God bless you". Your gifts to these little ones are good and perfect, because they come from the Lord.
Your fellow servant in God's ministry,
