Orphan Success Spotlight: John
Updated: Nov 12, 2021
At just six years old, John Oluwaseun Olanrewaju lost his father. His mother struggled to raise him and his two brothers, but thankfully in 2008, Life Builders was able to provide them with support. Since then, John's life changed forever. His sponsorship started while he was in Junior Secondary School and continued thoughout his time at university. He now holds a Bachelor Degree in Geography and Planning Science from Adekunle Ajasin University in Ondo State, Nigeria.
None of this would have been possible without the love and support from his sponsors. He personally thanks his sponsors for taking him in as their own son and always providing him with words of encouragement and prayers.
"I always look forward to reading their letters, which have been a motivation for me to thrive and be successful," John said. "It wasn't just about the financial assistance that sponsors provide us with, but also the dedication and effort put forth into ensuring that Life Builders children are growing spiritually through Christ."
He hopes to be able to support more orphans through Life Builders Ministry in the future and advise those currently benefitting from the program. To him, Life Builders is more than a ministry; it's a family.
