It has been such a pleasure to invest in the life of a child through OneChild. Kristi and I are on our second child and his name is Jeuri, a fourth grader in Dajabon. He lives with his mom, dad and brother. I haven’t been to see him and his family yet but I’ll have the opportunity this January and I can’t wait. This is one of the special things about the Fellowship of the Rockies’ partnership in Dajabon with OneChild. We get to see our sponsored children and even when we can’t make the trip, another church family member can pass on our greetings and take a little gift.
What is most encouraging to me about our investment is that I know the Pastor of that church personally and how much he cares for the children and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know God has His hand on him and is using him to make a difference not only in that church but in the surrounding community. Since I haven’t had the conversation with Jeuri I am unsure if he has accepted Jesus as his Savior, but I firmly believe that he will if he hasn’t yet done so.
If you aren’t sponsoring a child, would you pray about joining us in making a profound impact in the life of one of the other children in Dajabon.
Celebrate the Journey,
Stewart & Kristi McWilliams
Lead Pastors, Fellowship of the Rockies
Children’s Best Hope: A Strong Church
Our vision for the church is global: The body of Christ growing, strong, united. If the church is strong in a poverty-stricken community, we know that we can effectively help the children living there. A strong local church partner is one of our prerequisites for ministry. And that ministry isn’t possible without the support of the church in the U.S.
We’re building a
community of hope.
OneChild sponsors provide encouragement, love and support to children living in poverty. And they empower an entire community of caring individuals who walk alongside those children as they grow. Through that community, sponsorship provides the resources and opportunities children need to rise above their circumstances and reach their potential in Christ. In fact, recent research demonstrates that child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to combat global poverty. There’s real power in one person reaching out to one child through community—power that changes both lives!
Sponsorship with OneChild helps children grow in…
Your child has the opportunity to learn about God and His purpose for their life.
Your child gets help with their studies and is taught problem-solving, leadership, literacy, and life skills.
Your child is provided nutritious food and supplements and has access to medical check-ups and immunizations to fight common diseases.
Your child is encouraged to socialize with others and receives instruction in sports, music, and drama.
WHERE WE SERVE
OneChild sponsors empower the loving community that surrounds each child in our care. You can provide education, medical care, spiritual support, and hope to a child in desperate need.
We are accountable to the children we serve AND to our donors.
Our accountability to our donors is one of our highest priorities. Our goal is to use the funds entrusted to us as wise stewards. To do this requires continued monitoring of our fund distribution. OneChild is also a member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA)
