I bring armloads full of joyful greetings from the Church and the Upendo sponsorship program in Uganda. For many years we have been part of a fruitful partnership with the Children of Promise sponsorship program. Children’s lives are changing daily through educational programs, nutritional and medical care, and spiritual input through the relationship with the Church.
There are many testimonies of how sponsorship has changed a life; Elizabeth is one who grew up in a single-parent family and through Upendo received her education. Upon finalizing her course in Engineering, she got a job in Jinja that oversees road works all over Uganda. God is so wonderful!
Through this program new relationships and bonds are formed that can last a lifetime. In Uganda, the Church of God has 900+ children sponsored through this program from the US, and everyone has the opportunity to do something great with their lives — they only have to try!
Thanks to you, poverty is lifting and smiles are returning to faces all over Uganda.
Rev. Colleen Stevenson
Program Director of Upendo, Uganda
