For many sponsors, the financial commitment is the “easy” part, and the other ways of connecting with their child present more of a challenge. Be encouraged! Your role in your sponsored child’s life is vitally important. You are prayed for often. And any action you take to engage with your child is received with joy. We are so thankful for your commitment to your child, and are happy to help you connect with him or her in any way we can.

The periodic updates you receive about your sponsored child will certainly give you insights for prayer. Additionally, if you’re not already signed up for Lahash’s weekly prayer email, you can do that right here. Each week, we receive current updates and prayer requests from our African partners. At times these requests will be related to issues directly affecting your sponsored child.
