Dinesh Reunites with his Father

DINESH | Nepal

Ten-year-old Dinesh, in Nepal, had no one to provide for him after his father went to prison. His relatives rejected him and his mother—they refused to help or even speak to them. With no income and no support, life seemed hopeless and Dinesh felt like no one cared about him.

Now enrolled in our child sponsorship program, Dinesh’s needs are being met. His caseworker visits him regularly to ensure he’s healthy, safe, and doing well in school. And he’s developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

But the story doesn’t end there. The generosity of sponsors and supporters is changing the lives of Dinesh and his family. His father was recently released from prison with a transformed heart.

He says, “I accepted Jesus Christ in prison when the caseworker shared God’s words [with me].”

Dinesh’s family is now reunited, and your love and support—and their newfound faith—are helping them build their lives on a strong foundation.

“I got biblical knowledge through you, which helps me grow in Christ,” Dinesh told his sponsor. “Now, I am sharing the Gospel in school and to my neighbors. My aim is to do ministry work and be a pastor.”

Dinesh’s father shares a similar aspiration. While Dinesh’s mother works as a tailor for a local school, his father is preparing to become a missionary.

“My father is inspired by [our] caseworker, and wants to be like him,” says Dinesh.

Thank you for helping give this family a new beginning.

Help a child like Dinesh experience hope for the future.
