A cash presentation was made today by Voice of Divine Truth International Outreach to Mrs. Bose Afolayan to finance her sons’ education. Mrs. Afolayan is a widow, who lost her husband 12 years ago and has since been saddled with the responsibility of providing for the upkeep of her two sons all alone.
We made a commitment to the family two years ago, when they were introduced to us, to sponsor the education of the kids from Secondary School to the University. With the help of our committed donors and in a bid to keep this promise, Mrs. Afolayan was invited to our office today to receive this token so as to meet the financial needs of her sons’ education
At times we wonder why so many of our widows are so poor, but yet we do nothing to solve this problem. The truth is that they have no assistance and many of them have to bear the burden of catering for their children alone. This should not be so, for we as humans have a duty to assist others, especially those in need.
James 1:27 (NIV) says; 27 “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
The Bible as seen in James 1:27 stated above also encourages us to come to the aid of the orphans and widows and look after them, and those who do so practice true religion!
We know how important it is that a child remains in school and that is why we try to inspire individuals with our actions and remind them that there are children out there who need your help, if you have, give and you will be amazed as God will replenish you for helping those in need. We cannot do this alone but with the help of our donors and inspired individuals out there who we urge to show love to the needy. Surely we can ensure that all kids stay off the streets and remain in school.
Remember, every child is your child. That is the way God sees it. Whenever you support a poor child, you are demonstrating an authentic service to God.
There is no religion greater than love!
