Children of Promise

This is the Church of God child sponsorship ministry. During the 2013 Kids Kollege session, kids, staff, parents and friends raised enough money to initiate adoption of a child from Tanzania.



FSCC’s child is a boy and his name is John Yusufu. His birthday is May 9, 2005. His favorite subject is English. His daily tasks include tending to the goats and fetching water. John’s father is Pastor Yusufu and his mother, Josephine is a nurse. The monthly family income is $28. John has 2 brothers and 1 sister. John and his family live in a two room homemade of burnt bricks with an iron sheet roof and dirt floor. There is no electricity in the home and cooking is done by using a wood fire. Because of his father’s occupation, the family is in danger of persecution. Communication with John is a very long process done through an interpreter. Please contact George Hanohano through the church office for correspondence information. Cost to sponsor John is $32 a month. Future plans call for either adopting another child or providing funds to the Unsponsored Children Fund. This fund helps to cover expenses for children whose sponsorships have been discontinued.  Today, there are more than 100,000 children served.
