POTTER'S CLAY & CCM CHILD SPONSORSHIP
Just a few weeks ago, we received an email from Katelyn Honea. She is a long-time supporter of this ministry and has been on 5 short-term mission trips to Nicaragua with us. She also sponsors a beautiful little girl named Katherine in the Renacer Barrio. In our correspondence Katelyn said, "I recently started a business, Potter's Clay. I want to donate 30% of the sales to help children in need of sponsorship through CCM." WOW! What a blessing to the thousands of children in Nicaragua who are still in need of sponsorship!

CCM Child Sponsorship provides monthly food and weekly Biblical discipleship for more than 600 children each week. Find your child today at www.ccm.life/sponsorship.
