“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” – Mother Teresa
This is Josan Mpina. As a child, he was orphaned and faced an uncertain future until help came in the form of sponsorship through ROWAN from the Beason family. The Beason’s helped fund Josan’s education and in February of 2020, he was able to graduate from the mason skills and building practices program. To celebrate this huge accomplishment, the Beason’s bought Josan the tools he would need to be able to work in his new industry.
In a letter he wrote at the end of his sponsorship, Josan spoke of his gratitude for ROWAN, its leadership, and his beloved sponsors. He also expressed his appreciation for the love that he, “a needy orphan” received and for the fact that people were willing to advocate “for a person like me.”
When we say that we are grateful for each of our sponsors and donors, we are speaking words from our hearts. Your help allows ROWAN to be able to do the work that our Savior exemplified during his mortal ministry – that of loving and serving our fellow men. What a blessing that is. What a blessing you are.
We wish each of you a beautiful Easter filled with the peace that is found in Christ.
