Amadie is a single mother who have been a disciple for 7 years, in the Ikeja-Ketu region in Lagos church. Her son’s name is Michael and he is 8 years old. Amadie works as an office assistant in a small company, but her meagre monthly income can barely feed her small family. She is requesting financial assistance to buy groceries, pay rent, and school fees. Your help for this sister and her young son, would be truly appreciated thank you so much!

Jeanne was baptized in 2003. She is the mother of six children and a widow.

After struggling for several years to take care of my children, I had the idea to open up a small corner store where I sold vegetables, soft drinks, and other everyday goods. With this business, I was able to overcome my financial instability and provide for my kids.

With the pandemic shaking the world, the president declared a state of health emergency and economic activities in the big city have since slowed down. Large markets and shops are either closed or have very few customers. I have now found myself in a situation where I am unable to pay the rent or buy groceries for my children. I am requesting financial assistance to help while we navigate these difficult times in our world. God bless!

Hello, I am a disciple, teacher in childcare, servant in the sacrament, spiritual brother in the congregation, friend, dreamer, entrepreneur, husband and father of a 13-year-old son who is in high school. I am 38 years old, and I was recently able to graduate from high school thank God! I work in construction in my country as a bricklayer's assistant. The pandemic has brought a lot of work challenges and there have been many times that I have gone without pay.

My son needs the internet to attend classes online. He is a senior in high school and I would like him to finish school on time and not have to postpone the way I had to. At the moment, I do not have the money to pay for the registration fees and hope in Christ is the only thing that keeps us going. My son and I are seeking your help to pay for his schooling and assist us with our household needs as we go through this difficult time. Thank you for your consideration!

Thierry and Lucile met at the Church of Christ in Abidjan and got married in December 2005. Thierry became a disciple in November 1999, and Lucile in February 1997. They have a 13-year-old daughter. Thierry is a self-employed person in the field of electronic security, and his wife, who worked in an organization fighting against HIV / AIDS, has lost her job in September 2019, following the donor's decision to no longer fund the project she was working on. Since then, she has been looking for a new job, but so far, no luck.
With the onset of the Covid-19, Thierry's work took a turn for the worse and he is unable to find new customers. The family's savings, which made it possible to meet the expenses of the house (rent, bills and other necessities), are almost exhausted. To be able to make ends meet, Thierry's family is asking for financial assistance of at least to meet the family's basic needs. Your prayers and support are greatly appreciated!

María Luisa is 59 year-old and has been a disciple for three years. She deals with hypertension and diabetes; she is married and her 68-year-old husband is ill.

María Luisa is dedicated to the sale and repair of sewing machines. She had a machine repair shop in the city of Monclova, Coahuila, Mexico, but unfortunately, she had to close her shop due to the pandemic. It was impossible for her to pay for the rental space and pay the expenses of running the business. She was forced to liquidate her inventory to pay for her apartment rent.

Today, thanks to God, they have reopened their business, but they still have outstanding debts from their temporary closure. They are in need of help to pay for their basic needs as they work to reestablish their income. Your generosity for this hard working couple is greatly appreciated!
