WILLS POINT, TX – Discover how GFA child sponsorship, helps transforms lives in South Asia’s underprivileged communities one child at a time.
When Akshay Sharma moved away from home 14 years ago, he couldn’t imagine the impact he’d make on his new city.
AGFA World Child Sponsorship Programproject director, Akshay has a unique life story, but he shares something in common with all other Bridge of Hope project directors: a passion for blessing children and their families with Christ’s compassion.
Teacher and Disciple Maker
1998 marked a milestone in Akshay’s life. That year, he made a commitment to follow Jesus and moved more than 800 miles away from home to work at a Christian school. During his eight years teaching there, he got married and joined a team of believers dedicated to telling others about Jesus.
Akshay shared the Good News while visiting hospitals, handing outliterature and visiting people’s homes. As he ministered, he witnessed four families embrace Jesus’ love. Among them was Ajith, a young man who later joined a GFA World Bible college. While visiting Ajith at the college, Akshay heard about Child Sponsorship Program and decided to become a staff member.
Akshay took on the difficult task of starting a Child Sponsorship Program centre in one of his city’s most underprivileged neighbourhoods—a slum.
