Expectation swelled in Pilan and Lali’s heart when their 5-year-old son, Dyami, started at the local Gospel for Asia (GFA World) Child Sponsorship Bridge of Hope center. This would be a new beginning for him. They desired a better future for their children, and now one of them would get that chance.
Pilan, Dyami’s father, provided for their family by farming. The area, with its fertile soil, thrived on agriculture, and many people cultivated land or reared livestock. Lali, Dyami’s mother, worked in their home, tending to her family’s needs. Both father and mother loved their children and wanted the best for them. They worked hard to ensure their family had what it needed to survive and be happy. Even so, when Bridge of Hope came into their lives, it brought with it a relief knowing it would ease financial strains and meet many of their son’s needs.
Lessons Influence Change
Seeing their son Dyami grow during the first few years at Bridge of Hope deepened Pilan and Lali’s hope that he would become a brilliant student, able to make a good life for himself. They saw tremendous changes in their son as Bridge of Hope helped him sharpen his academic skills and taught him moral values that shaped his young heart.
