A Letter of Thanks

Dear Sponsor of Potters Field Ministries,

  My name is Micah Clark. I am a nineteen-year-old New Jersey native who is currently living in Uganda, Africa with the Potters Field IGNITE program. I would like to formally thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I wish I could tell you face to face, but as of now, I will just have to do so over a letter. So thank you so much. I am unsure if you know all that your donations go to, but I have been a part of first-hand seeing and receiving the blessing that you have been and are. Here in Uganda, every Saturday we have a Kids Club. At Kids Club the children receive a Bible lesson and lunch. The children are nourished both physically and also spiritually. Some of these kids don’t get to eat every day, so this free lunch on Saturday is a guaranteed meal for at least one day. Your donation means something. And the children here have to pay fees for their education and with large families, even some single families, money is tight, so your donations go to help put Ugandan children into school so they can receive a better future.

Your donation goes to help sendthe interns to different parts of Africa too. Three other interns and I just went to a country named Burundi. Burundi is two countries away from Uganda and the second most impoverished nation in the world. With your donation, we not only assisted in a Pastor’s conference but also put on a Kids Club and Sunday school for the children. You also had the opportunity to provide food for the group of fifty pastors at this conference as well as a group of hungry, Burundian kids.

If you are at all curious if your donation actually makes a difference, it does. I have seen this first-hand. My time here on the field has been life changing. I entered IGNITE immature and just a boy, but I feel as my time wraps up I am maturing more and more every day and turning into a Christ-centered man. I certainly still have a way to go, but just the growth that has come out of this short season is more than I could ever imagine without it.

I wish you had the chance to see on your own what your donation does, just the impact it makes in the lives of the children here. The Ugandan kids are beautiful, energetic, playful, and just such bundles of joy. It breaks my heart to know they don’t get food, shoes, clothes, or basic life necessities sometimes, but your donation goes towards that. So I am so thankful for that.

As I have only a month and a half left in Uganda, I will be leaving soon, but my heart will continue to be here. So I thank you for your donations, and I thank you for your prayers, and I thank you for being a part of something bigger than you, even if you don’t get to see it first-hand.  I ask you that you would continue to donate for these kids. I am so thankful to know that every Saturday thanks to you as a Sponsor they will receive at least one meal for the day or even the week. I can’t express it enough of how thankful I am for you.

With much love and appreciation,

Micah Clark
