Testimonials from Students
Peter Abel, one of the first students at Rishama:
I was 9 years old when I came to Rev. Thomas Maijamaa. I was born and raised in a small village where there was good drinking water, but I had no hope of education because I and my siblings only worked in the farm. But glory be to God, Rishama raised me up to know Jesus and trained me to acquire education. Rishama sent me to Igbaja Kwara State where I completed my high school last year and I am now a first year student at Federal University of Technology Minna Niger State Nigeria. This is amazing. Praise God. I wish my father were alive to be proud of me because at present I am the only child in my entire village to go to university. I am now 23 years old.
Testimonials from Donors
The Hummel Family's Sponsorship Experience:
We are humbled and overjoyed to be a small part of Rishama International by sponsoring Confidence, a beautiful 13-year old child at the orphanage. We feel so blessed to be able to exchange letters with Confidence and hear about the loving and enriching environment at Rishama. Our daughter especially enjoys corresponding with Confidence, since they are not far apart in age and share some of the same interests, even though they may be worlds apart. There is no better reward than to see the smiling faces on the Rishama website and learn of the impact our small contribution has on the medical care, education, and hope that comes to the children from knowing Christ and living in this safe and loving sanctuary
