God Loves Kids creates lasting change for children. Wilson Kazungu is a shining illustration of the difference that child sponsorship makes in the life of a desperate child. Wilson’s life would never be the same after his father and uncle were murdered in 1983 during the civil war in Uganda. Becoming an orphan in Uganda is like being diagnosed with a terminal illness.

Emily Barnes’ trip to Africa wasn’t just something to check off her bucket list, it was her dream becoming a reality. The Lord placed the desire to make this trip in her heart when she was 15 years old. She didn’t know then that it would be almost 13 years before this dream became a reality.
“One day as we were finishing taking pictures of the children at Harvest School in Kibilira, it began raining. We quickly ran for cover into one of the school buildings, but not before the chairs that we were sitting on got wet. One little boy, who couldn’t have been more than 10 years old, saw that my chair was wet, so he came over, took his shirt sleeve, wiped the chair dry and motioned for me to sit down. It was one of the sweetest acts of kindness that still moves me to tears when I think about it!” Download Newsletter
Our Leh Ladakh had a terrible flash flood. You must be aware of it. It really made everything so horrible. Places called Choglamsar, Sabu, Shahshaliv, Phyang and so many others are terribly affected. We lost so many lives. Many are still missing. The dead are still being found in the debris and it is unimaginable. Villages are just swept away with no remains. People are in great shock. More than 100 students of our schools are badly affected. They lost their dear ones. Houses are washed away, roads & bridges are broken, and property lost, and fields badly damaged or completely washed away. Roads have broken apart, bridges have fallen. Our hearts are broken after seeing all the damage. It is unbelievable. Download Newsletter

A Life Forever Changed
Our entire team was tired, hot, and sweaty on that August day in 2006 but we didn’t care because we felt a little of heaven as dozens of children and young people crushed against us to give us a hug and vying for a little personal attention. When things calmed down some several of the older students came to me expressing their dreams for the future, which “Mama Lovie, pray that God will give me a sponsor to go to college or technical school.” It was a joy to hear their excitement but I knew I would never remember everyone’s request.

A Letter from Christopher Dixon
Over the years, I have had the opportunity to travel to many countries and see many places. My trip to Rwanda was very different than any other previous travel experience I have had. My best friend, Derek, and I traveled to Kibilira, Rwanda this past February to build a water well for Harvest Children’s Center founded by God Loves Kids. Download Newsletter
