In September 2007 Lea and I decided that we would sponsor a compassion child. After searching through the available children on compassions website we choose Ahebwa Rogers. Today Ahebwa will turn 12 years old. Ahebwa lives in Uganda Africa, he lives with his Aunt because his Mother has died and his father does not live at home. Lea and I enjoy writing letters and hearing about Ahebwa’s progress in school and how he uses his Christmas and Birthday gift money for purchasing a pig for the family and other very practical things. It is unlikely that Lea and I will ever meet Ahebwa in person on this earth but we know that our sacrifice of just $38.00 a month is making the difference in his life. Our prayer is that Ahebwa will grow up to be someone who will make a difference in his community. I pray that he will know that his life matters and that we love and care for him. Happy Birthday Ahebwa, we love you!
