At Family Legacy, our work is focused on one goal: Glorifying God by sharing the gospel with orphaned children in Zambia and empowering them to live out their God-given potential. We go into this mission with a keen understanding that a traditional first-world path is not the singular path of success for our enrolled children. The lens through which we view determines that which we are able to see.
In our Christian perspective, success lives in each child’s ability to know, grow in, and walk with Christ while expanding his or her education for worldly achievement. And as we expand our understanding, we see that achievement ranges from financial success to simply being a productive member of one’s community. When our children graduate from high school we celebrate, and when they accept Christ we celebrate louder. Each of our walks with Him varies. The role Family Legacy and our sponsors play is one of empowerment, not judgment or mandating a path for the child’s future. We pray for Zambia to come alive with native doctors, entrepreneurs, engineers, and more, but we pray more fervently for Christians to live in accordance with His commands, spreading the truth of the gospel.
Therefore, if we simply give our children a foundation of education and exposure to the truth, we have shined a light into the darkness thus illuminating that child’s path and stoking Zambia’s future generations for transformational change. We remain deeply proud of our children’s academic achievements. We think that once we see their range of achievement through this lens, every day a child is sponsored is a celebration.
