Meet Iragena

As a mom of triplet boys, people always ask me if we’re “going to try for a girl”. I don’t go into how I almost died during child birth and met God and was surrounded by His white light, His love, His joy, His peace. I simply laugh and say no. (Read the full story here.)

But we now have a girl. Friends, thanks to you and your generous purchases, we have a girl. When looking through all the children awaiting sponsorship, we narrowed the search down to children who had been waiting more than 6 months. And then we saw Iragena, saw that she shares our boys’ birthday.

Her name is Iragena. She lives in Rwanda. Please pray for her.

Prayer for my sponsor: “To love people and to be God-fearing”

Prayer request from child: “I wish to be a great preacher and to be a business woman”

She is praying for us to love God and others. She wants to be a preacher and business woman. This sweet girl is wise beyond her years. Let’s pray for her, her goals, her heart.

See Rebecca St. James’ video about sponsoring in Rwanda:

It is impossible to select just one child to sponsor, so my dream continues that with continued sales, more and more children can be sponsored. The commitment for each child is $38/month. There are still many more in need of support, so please consider helping.
