Things Coming Up

September 06, 2016

​It’s a big month for the children of Amazima! Holiday break will come to an end soon and students are counting down the days with excitement. While many around the world look forward to school breaks, most of the children in our sponsorship outreach don’t. They’re hungry for knowledge and are humbled by the opportunity to receive an education. For them, learning is not a burden or simply a part of growing up… it’s a gift. What if we all viewed education like that?

Knowing how much the children love school work, some of our mentors put together packets of educational worksheets for students to go through over break. Their response? Sheer excitement!

“These reminders are how we make it through everyday.”

People who knew her say there was always something different about Hannah. Even at a young age her passion inspired many. Hannah was deeply impacted by Kisses From Katie, and had every intention to give her life away to teaching children, missions, and the gospel.
