Compassion Sunday Event
June 5, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Celebrate Compassion Sunday with us on June 5th! During Both Sunday Morning Services, we welcome guest speaker Gilbert Mfitundinda of Uganda. Gilbert will share a small part of his story during the Sunday morning service, but you are all invited and encouraged to come back in the evening to hear his whole story (Sunday June 5th, 6:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall).
You will have the opportunity to hear the story of one of Compassion’s graduates and see for yourself how God uses the ministry of child sponsorship to release children from poverty. Gilbert was the youngest of eight children, raised in a remote region of southwestern Uganda. His father passed away when he was young, and his mother’s part time work as a peasant farmer barely kept the family fed.
When he was 7 years old, he was invited to participate in Compassion’s child development program and thus received nutritious meals, healthcare, education and the opportunity to pursue higher education. He was able to attend college and was the first of his family to graduate from college.
His story was changed because someone like you stepped up to become his sponsor.
We are very excited to welcome him to Harvest and to introduce you to this opportunity to partner with God in this way.
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Luke 18:16
