Here at Childcare Worldwide, we have a lot of good days – God blesses this ministry in so many ways. But the best days of all are the days we hear about our kids making public declarations of their faith in Christ.

Last week, FIVE of our sponsored children in Peru were baptized at our partner churches. We are so excited to see Leonardo, Renzo, Jordy, Abigail, and Celeste take this step!

When they were baptized, each of the kids gave their testimony. Here’s what Renzo said about his spiritual transformation:

“When I did not have Jesus in my heart, I was telling many lies and tending towards evil. I did not realize what I was doing until I met God and decided to change. I thank God that through my sponsors, He allows me to attend my Life center and know more about Him.”

Isn’t that wonderful? Each of the others shared similar sentiments. Without the help of Childcare Worldwide, these kids would not be learning about God – and they might never have had the chance to give their lives to Christ. But because of their sponsors, and the generosity of donors like you, their faith is growing! That’s why in his testimony, Leonardo said, “I thank God for [Childcare Worldwide] because through their help I can know God.”

After the baptism, we talked to Abigail about her decision. She told us that for her, it was an act of obedience to God, and that it was another step in her journey of faith. But what she wasn’t expecting was how great she felt afterwards. “I feel happy,” she said, “because I am fulfilling His Word.”

We’re so proud of each of these kids, and excited to see where their journeys will lead them next. Join us today in praising God for their new lives in Him, and praying for their continued growth.
