Peer Pressure

Meet Eliza – 
“I cannot stop saying thank you for the difference you have made in my life!”

A teenage girl needs a dad. Eliza felt “less than” because she had no father and her mother struggled to provide the basics for her and her two siblings. Eliza watched the other kids walk to school in their nice, clean uniforms while she played in the dust. When she turned ten, she was welcomed into a Ministry CarePoint in Namibia. Eliza remembers feeling proud to be sitting next to her peers in a classroom with a new uniform and a “quality school bag”. School was hard at first, she was behind and was a slow learner. At the CarePoint, she was taught to work hard and received tutoring from her CareGivers, helping her to not only catch up in school, but to excel in school.

Once she felt insecure, but as she was cared for and taught the good news of Jesus, the gap of fatherlessness in her life was filled. Because of this she is now a confident influencer to her peers, and her teachers say that her respect and good behavior makes a positive impact on all her friends. As a 16-year-old, she is grateful and says “I cannot stop saying thank you for the difference you have made in my life!”


THANK YOU for making a difference in Eliza’s life!

Peace and Blessings,
