Compassion UK

Through Compassion UK we have sponsored Frankline, a young man in Kenya, providing him with the resources so that he can complete his education. This support has made a huge difference in his life, and he is now a qualified welder.

The church recently agreed to start sponsoring a new child, and we're pleased to be helping ten-year-old John,compassion also from Kenya.

John lives with his Mum and Dad and his eight brothers and sisters. He likes playing football and his favourite Bible story is Noah's Ark.

John's latest letter - December 2015 (letters take some time to arrive!)

John writes: Hello and how are you doing? I hope you are well, all is good here. Thank God for the gift of life I am also doing well in school. I changed to a different school, Vipingo primary. I am going to class four next term - I am ten years' old now.

My parents love you so much they always remember you in prayers because of the way you help and support us. How are you going to spend your Christmas? I pray that you have a blessed and fruitful Christmas period.

Thank you and be blessed.
