Mother’s Day is just days away. You may have slipped a list of what you want under your husband’s coffee mug. Or written it on the bathroom mirror with your finger so he can read it as he waits for the steam to lift before he shaves.
There are many moms in Asia who have the same list this Mother’s Day that they have each day–a list for their children, for good food, health care, and education. Gospel for Asia wants to make their wish come true and you can help. They want to see 2,000 new children sponsored in honor of Mother’s Day.
Here’s one of the stories Gospel for Asia shares:
Gayana was only twenty when her husband died, leaving her and their young son, Vikranta, alone in the world. Gayana despaired as she wondered how she would provide for Vikranta. She was no longer welcome at her in-laws home, and her elderly parents were unable to support her.
Having nowhere else to go, Gayana moved in with one of her sisters. She was so distressed over her situation that she stopped eating and sank into a deep depression.
Then a neighbor told her about a nearby Gospel for Asia Bridge of Hope center, a place that offered help to poor children. Gayana visited the center and shared her desperate story with the director. To Gayana’s great joy and relief, Vikranta was enrolled in Bridge of Hope immediately.
Bridge of Hope Has the Answer
Bridge of Hope provided Vikranta with everything he needed to attend and thrive at school. Although Gayana found work as a daily wage laborer, she earns only about a dollar a day. Without Bridge of Hope, she would never have been able to provide her son with the education he is receiving. Gayana is happy and grateful that her son has been given a chance—a chance that many Asian mothers only dream of their children having.
For just $35 a month, you can provide a mother with the hope she is longing for. Her child will receive
- a daily nutritious meal.
- the message of Jesus’ love.
- a quality education.
- a better life than she had.
