READ A TESTIMONY FROM A CHILD SPONSOR
When I first learned about GRACE, I was struck by two things: first, Jon and Angie have not at all become “used to” the circumstances of these children and were able to convey the desperate situation they’re facing in a way that made it very personal. Many of us hear stories of children caught up in human trafficking, but the villages are distant; we don’t know their names, we don’t see their faces. Jon and Angie made that personal connection for me, and I started to listen more closely and God started to open my heart to how I could help.
The second thing that struck me was how easy it is to get involved. Prayer is obviously crucial to the success of any organization, but funding is still necessary. When our pastor plainly stated the TINY “sacrifice” required to sponsor a child, breaking down exactly how easy it would be to set aside a monthly amount, it was a no-brainer. (That fancy coffee I treat myself to a couple times a week? Take those funds and give them to GRACE.) What is my “comfort” compared to a child’s life? And how in the world could I say no to that?
I am honored to play a small part in GRACE’s mission. These children are so loved by those that work with them and their families, and it’s humbling to see what big things God is doing through this organization. Miracles are happening. Families are being supported. Lives are being changed. And I’m gaining new brothers and sisters in Christ.

SPONSOR A CHILD
CHANGE A LIFE
Making a commitment to a child whose family does not have the means to support their education or, possibly, to even care for their child sufficiently will not only change their life but, their families, their communities, and your own life.
Change the world with us!
What is an frc?
FRC stands for Family Resource Center. At GRACE we value strengthening families and supporting parents in raising their children.
We host an after school program during the school year; this creates a safe place for the children while their parents finish up their day of work. During the summers we provide free day camp so that the parents can continue to work hard at their jobs, even while their kids are out of school. We also provide parenting classes, budgeting classes, and are here for any needs that may arise in our communities. To support the activities and maintenance of the family resource centers, donate below.
