Project HOPEFUL Awassa FIG Sponsor meets child!

One of our FIG families were able to meet their FIG child in Awassa last week!  We are so thankful she took the time to go meet Mintamir and her family!  Project HOPEFUL Awassa is blessed by wonderful families who go the extra mile. Here are some pictures and Melinda’s thoughts.

from Melinda:

Meeting the little girl we sponsor through Project HOPEFUL Awassa was on of the highlights of my LIFE!! Amazing experience.. I can't encourage people enough to look into this program. $30 a month gives a child a chance at an education, spiritual, physical and social support.

Sweetest little thing ever

She changed right away into an outfit I brought for her.

We were also able to travel to her tiny 2 room house that she lives in with her 17 year old sister and 9 year old brother.

Would you like to become a Family In the Gap sponsor as well? Go to this post to see what your $30 contributes to and children who still need a FIG.

Thank you Melinda and family!
