From Sponsored Child to Nurse: Chalice Helps Philip Pursue His Dream

philip1My name is Philip. I come from an East African country called Kenya and I’m a beneficiary of the financial generosity and sponsorship of Chalice. I attended Starehe Boys Center and School in Kenya's capital, Nairobi from 2004 to 2007. Throughout this period, my tuition fees, accommodation and other expenses were taken care of by my very special sponsor Elizabeth. I cannot thank her enough for her generosity. Every day I pray that the Lord continues to bless her abundantly.

I am sure she will be glad to know that through her generosity, I graduated from high school and was admitted to the best university in Kenya to pursue a bachelor's degree in Nursing. I completed the four year degree course and I am currently employed by the Ministry of Health in Kenya. I work in the arid areas of Northern Kenya among the displaced Somali community as a nurse.

philipIn the future, I plan on sponsoring a child and/or build a children's home where the less fortunate will find refuge. The late Dr. William Griffin used to tell us that to whom much has been given, much is expected. I pray that I will fulfil this dream that I have.

After high school I lost contact with Elizabeth but my hope is that through God’s divine mercy this letter will find a way to her so that she knows how grateful I am. Also on behalf of all other direct and indirect beneficiaries of CHALICE, I am very much thankful for the work that you do around the world especially in developing countries.

To Elizabeth: We may never meet physically but your generosity has helped shape the course of my life. I cannot thank you enough for your support. May God bless you and your family beyond measure. You are truly heaven sent.

Sponsor a child like Philip and help fulfill their future potential.
