Today I would ask you to pray for another child waiting for a sponsor. Her name is Anneti Uwineza. Anneti is 11 years old and her name “Uwineza” translates to mean “the one with grace”.
(In Rwanda, there are not “family names” like we use last names in the US/Europe. Each child is given a name in their language, Kinyarwanda, and usually a second name in French or English is given when they are baptized.)
Anneti and her two sisters (including Gloriose, our Prayer Focus #1) and younger brother live with their mother. Their father died in 2009. Their mother tries to provide for the needs of her family by washing other people’s clothes or selling charcoal (common cooking fuel). Anneti is in 3rd grade at school, and when she is not in school or helping her mother, she enjoys jumping rope (as does her sister also).
Anneti has been waiting for a sponsor for 4 years. Please pray for someone to step forward to sponsor her (she is featured right now on our website under At Risk sponsorship). Please also pray for this family to have their needs provided for and for her mother to be able to lead her family with wisdom and grace. Pray for them to be safe and to trust in God for all that they need: their hopes, dreams, and futures. You can also pray for Anneti to be successful in her studies at school.
Thank you for praying with us & for believing for God to change these lives!
God Bless You,
