Jelinda Immaculate Akello
Many of you will remember having the Watoto choir come to visit a few years ago (and their previous visits too). Watoto is a family of people from all over the world who are working together to ensure that the forgotten have a place to belong. Watoto has placed thousands of orphans in families, empowered vulnerable women to reach their communities, rescued babies and former child soldiers, and sent children’s choirs across six continents. They have always been a huge blessing to us as a church as we have had the pleasure of hosting the choir in our homes and watching their vibrant and inspiring performances.
As a church we sponsor one of the “aunties” from Watoto who helps to look after the children in the Watoto village. Her name is Jelinda Immaculate Akello. Jelinda is 34 years old and describes herself as being passionate about serving God. Our financial support is enabling her to nurture the children who are placed in her care. As well as offering this sponsorship we want to be committed to praying for Jelinda as a whole church family and we will also be sending her letters to build our relationship and to show her that she is known and remembered by us.
