Opportunity of a Lifetime has always been a personal sponsorship program where the love of Jesus is shown between a sponsor and a child and lives on both sides are changed! The pictures you see below are of some dear friends, Reid and Janice Bowman, who came to Honduras years ago and sponsored a little girl.
Sister Joan introduced this little girl that had on a red dress to Bro. Reid (first photo) and when she told him her name was Mercedes he said, "I've always wanted a red Mercedes." 12 years later, she graduated from high school and they came to walk her down the aisle to receive her diploma (second photo).
They gave her an "Opportunity of a Lifetime" and Mercedes graduated from our school with a diploma in hand and Jesus in her heart. Consider supporting a child today and change someone's life by showing them the love of Jesus. Let us know if you'd like more information.
