We asked MITS sponsor, Leigh Anne, why she and her family have chosen to support the life and education of Zera, a MITS student. Here's what she said:
"My family has sponsored Zera Atieno since Summer 2014. I met Zera when I was teaching at MITS during the 2014 summer break. She was in my middle level math and library classes and I fell in love with her immediately. My family has always loved helping people, but sponsoring Zera is more personal than just helping someone-we get to be a part of her life. We have the opportunity to help MITS provide her with a future. We feel so blessed to be able to watch her grow and learn, especially in her relationship with Christ. The pride we feel in Zera and her accomplishments is indescribable."
