3 Quick Tips to Keep Pace with Global Partners During a Pandemic

Have you had to cancel or postpone a trip to serve in another country this year? Have you considered repurposing your investment rather than losing it or delaying the opportunity?

1. Repurpose your plan

Is there a way to take the plans you have already made and modify them using virtual platforms? Can you offer other services or resources from your church that would not otherwise be available?

2. Repurpose your people

What if you kept the proposed team intact and rallied them to redirect their time and effort to serve the same ministry in other ways? Could you involve more people who wanted to participate but were not able to make the trip?

3. Repurpose your resources

What if you still raised the funds you were planning to raise and invested them in the ministry site you were planning to serve? What would it look like in this pandemic year to spend more of your budget on much needed food, water, or medical services in these disadvantaged countries?

Transform a Child's Life Through Sponsorship

Habari (Hello), my name is Betty Rhema

  • location

    Uganda

  • 19 yrs. old

    08-27-2003

Entered the Program: March 2020

Betty lives with her single mother and two siblings in a three-room house. Water is fetched by the children from a spring that is two kilometers from home, the family uses firewood for cooking and boiling water, and has one solar bulb to light their home.

Betty got pregnant and had a child in 2019; tragically her baby died in a house fire in February 2020. Since then, the program has continued to help Betty work through her trauma, help renovate the damaged home, and assist the family with monthly food parcels and seedlings for their garden. LAC’s support has also allowed Betty a chance to go back to school and finish her education.
