Nqobizitha’s story

Nqo in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe

What kind of LEGACY do you want to leave behind when you enter eternity?

Someone once said there are two kinds of people in this world—givers and takers.

Givers live to give themselves away. They are committed to investing their lives and resources in God’s work.

Takers are persons who believe the world revolves around them. They spend their lives and resources investing in themselves—their agenda, their desires, their enjoyment.

Which are you? A giver? Or, a taker?

You are, undoubtedly, a giver because you are part of the Horizon global missions family.

You are drawn to Jesus’ words: “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you” (Luke 6:38).

You GIVE so you can GET so you can GIVE MORE!

One of the ways you can create a lasting legacy through giving is by making a generous contribution to the Horizon Education Fund.

The Horizon Education Fund makes it possible for many of our African sponsored kids to remain in school.

In order for an African child or youth to enroll in elementary or high school, he or she must pay for tuition, books and supplies, and a school uniform.
Child sponsorship pays for most of these expenses.

Educational costs in some areas of Africa, however, are more expensive than in other areas. The Horizon Education Fund provides what our child sponsorship budget cannot cover.

Your gift to this Fund can make a lasting impact in the lives of countless kids!

Take, for example, Nqobizitha Ndlovu.

Nqo lives with his grandma in the Pelandaba District of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

In 2006, our Horizon team led by Alick and Vidah Phiri visited the area to determine who was eligible for orphan sponsorship.

They met a grandmother who was carrying a crying baby.

“Look at me!” she said with tears running down her cheeks.

“I’m now old, and my breasts aren’t able to produce any milk for the baby to feed. My daughter died during delivery three weeks ago, and left this child in my care. I’ve been giving him mostly water; he needs milk but I don’t have the money.”

Moved by the plight of the baby, the Phiris gave the woman money to purchase milk for three months.

Nqo was soon sponsored along with his two siblings. He has now been sponsored for twelve years and is dreaming of becoming a medical doctor. You can read more about Nqo's story here.

The Horizon Education Fund has kept Nqo in school, and your gift of $35, $75, $150, $300, or more this month will keep him there. He will start high school in January, 2019.

This is the kind of legacy that I want to create! How about you?

Grateful for God, you, and our sponsored African kids,
