Sponsor of the Month
Brad & Amber

Sponsorship couldn't happen without the kindness of quality people like the couple we would like to introduce to you below.

Amber and Brad Fisher have three children of their own, and are busy with running a business, participating in their vibrant church and taking care of all the details we all have on a daily basis. But something motivated them to share what they had with desperate children in a faraway place we know as India. Their motivation, they say, is the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:40 "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." You see, sponsorship is about doing what you can, not about thinking about why you can't. As Amber puts it
"we are so fortunate to live in a nation of great prosperity, I would find it difficult not to bless others as we are so richly blessed".

For this couple and their family they say the joy they get out of helping kids is "knowing that we are making a huge difference in the life of a child when it really does cost so little." Sponsorship is about giving what you can and watching it become a healthy happy person or place touched by your generosity and your prayers.

Thank you to all our sponsors. Thank you for being the difference in Rwanda, Kenya and India.

100s of Health Cards
Someone read our newsletter that it only costs $2 USD to get a health card for someone in Rwanda - he was so excited that he paid for a few hundred! He was so shocked to see that it costs so little to help a child get access to health care in Rwanda.
"We are so blessed in Canada and to see something like that is so cheap, I had to get involved and help this project."

Also, one of the people going to Rwanda on a team in November received $500 "to spend on the biggest need you see when you are there."
It is more fun to have money when traveling
to these poor countries!
You can channel gifts to these projects and get a tax receipt for it!  Reply to this email for more details.
