October - Remember Begidu


As you and your family and friends participate in the Chicks for Change campaign we want to ensure you are able to keep the children this campaign is truly for at the forefront of your mind. Each month a different Onesimus child will be highlighted so you can know and share a portion of his or her story.

Begidu lives at Onesimus' halfway home for boysAge: 10
Religion: Christian

About Begidu: Begidu lives in Onesimus' halfway home for boys. His father is alive and involved in Begidu's life, but is unable to care for Begidu at this time. Begidu is extremely affectionate and loves to laugh. In fact, if you want to laugh at a joke told in Amharic (Ethiopia's official language), let Begidu tell the joke and his facial expressions will do the trick! His biggest struggle is with school. He simply does not enjoy school and has to be encouraged to go.

Pray for: Love for learning / Growth in his faith / Fully restored relationship with his father
