Sponsorship is near and dear to my heart because I believe it is near and dear to God’s heart. Obviously, God loves children and He tells us to have faith like them, relentless and pure belief unclouded by adult practicality and cynicism. He tells us to love others as ourselves, to not show favoritism, to live humbly and to give generously, which is not dependent on our wealth or lack thereof. He adopts us, though dirty from sin, and makes a way for us to become clean through the blood of Jesus, so that not only can we approach Him, but also so that we can inherit the kingdom of God. In short, He sponsors us. He covers the costs. He invites us into the kingdom and provides for us a bright future with Him. God is the author of Sponsorship.
In the month of October, Doulos will launch a Sponsorship Campaign that we invite you to be a part of! The purpose of the campaign is to highlight the reason for sponsorship, the relationships that are cultivated due to it, the rewards that are reaped because of it, and the response that we hope to receive from others who are eager to enter into it. We invite you to follow along this month, and to prayerfully consider sponsoring one of our world changing students.
