WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

Today’s guest for On The Other Side #9 is Christine Murekatete. A Rwanda native, Christine was born just one year after the 1994 genocide. It was definitely a time of recovering and rebuilding which made it difficult for her parents to earn a living and provide for the family. In 2003, Christine had the opportunity to be sponsored by Africa New Life Ministries. This is Christine’s story of being on the other side of child sponsorship.

It was such a blessing to hear Christine share her story with us and all of the ways that the sponsorship program changed her life. In today’s episode, Christine tells us about the day her and her sister were chosen to be sponsored and receive an education. In addition to a standard education, they also took developmental classes to learn more about God’s word, leadership and even self-esteem. Christine also tells us how being sponsored allowed her life to be impacted so that, in the future, she could also impact others. Christine says “Seeing your life being impacted, it feels like you can do something like that to someone else.” Today, Christine holds a bachelor’s degree in mass media and communication, and currently works for Africa New Life as a mission officer! Christine’s confidence is so inspiring and it is so profound to hear how child sponsorship provides incredible opportunities for education, love, and support that help children flourish.
