Testimony of Uwitonze Redempta Rwanda
I am Uwitonze Redempta, and I am 31 years old. I was privileged to be cared for and educated at the COGOP orphanage. I was brought there when I became an orphan in 1994, after I lost both my parents in the genocide against Tutsis in Rwanda.
I thank God, the church took care of me and sent me to primary and secondary schools. I am now married to my husband and we have a baby. There was no way as an orphan to reach all those achievements without the love and care of the Church. They cared for me when my parents passed away, and that impacted my life forever.
During my stay in the orphanage, I was taught to pray and serve God, and I accepted the Lord in my life. I am so thankful for the salvation of God. Truly, if it had not been for the Church adopting me, I would have been one of the many children in the streets. But I was cared for by the people of God, and I love the people of God who cared for me.
Because the Church cared for me, I now feel blessed to take care of other children. I am grateful to the COGOP for caring for me until I grew up to make my own family. Praise God.
Testimony of M. Vikas Babu Rajahmundry, India
I thank God for the opportunity to communicate with you by the grace and will of Jesus Christ. My heartfelt thanks to you.
My name is Vikas. My sister and I were in the Mission Home for eight years and studied there. My mother has been bedridden for two years due to sickness, so my sister Kiranmayi and I left the Mission Home to help take care of her. Now, I work as a welder and my sister is a schoolteacher. Though we left the Mission Home, we go there now and teach songs and the Word of God to the younger brothers and sisters two times a month. I consider COGOP Mission
