A LIFE IMPACT STORY FOR SPORTS DAY ON SEPTEMBER 10TH
Khajal* loves reading books, but she came from a family of field laborers who had not been educated past 5th grade. When her father died, she and her mother were left unprotected and unprovided for.
Her ambition to become a teacher and break through family and societal norms to complete college is possible by completing her college education and learning her way out of poverty.
After her father’s sudden death due to liver failure, Khajal’s education was disrupted many times because her mother had problems caring for her, while also working in the fields and having other issues ongoing with the extended relatives.
Khajal’s mother attended a church service hosted in her village and approached the pastor afterwards about her hard situation. Now after receiving help from Restoring Hope, Khajal is completing her studies at a better English-intermediate school and wants to become a teacher.
“Every Sunday Khajal eats white rice with dhal curry and fried fish,” church members said.
She enjoys science labs, dancing at the orientation for new students and helping to welcome new students. Khajal says she “wants to make her parents proud” (referring to even her deceased father). She is in fellowship with other believers in her college and they gather to pray to God regularly. She praises the Lord and shares:
“I have many believing friends who also meditate on the word of God. I am very thankful to Restoring Hope for bringing me up and helping me to have a good life.”
If you aren’t able to advocate, participate, or give to our Sports Day campaign this September, could you pray for us to raise funds to support sending students like Khajal to college this year?
