"Who knows how I feel? I feel so happy to know I am special in someone's heart."
"At first I felt that I was not loved, but now I feel for the first time in my life that I am loved and it feels so good. I am so thankful."
What must it be like to have never felt true love? For most, feeling invisible is common. In one conversation, we heard it said that sponsors are only interested in the younger children; no one wants to help the older kids. "After 15 or 16 years of age, we are forgotten." We want these young adults to know that someone does love them; they are truly special in God's eyes.

Yesterday, we traveled to two of the schools that our kids attend to give them the opportunity to join On Belay sponsorship. Their smiles, hugs and tears filled our hearts. We asked them to tell us their dreams, what they want for their future. The realization that their dreams were possibilities overwhelmed them. What a priviledge to be a part of their lives.
There are many that still need someone to think they are special, to invest in their future. One young man looked on and asked, how can I become On Belay? We need more sponsors. Please check out our website and see how you might be involved.
