Invite a One Child Matters Ministry Representative to speak at your church or event!
Adam Braud is one of the newest members of the team but he’s not new to the ministry of One Child Matters. Although this is his first year on staff as a Ministry Representative, he has been connected to One Child Matters for five years in the field in Southern Africa, helping the other side of child sponsorship happen.
Adam is motivated by the greatest commandment: to love God and others. As he often says, “You can’t separate the two. If you love God you will love others.” He is confident that One Child Matters allows us to love children in poverty well. He has seen this for himself in a number of the countries in which One Child Matters has development centers, particularly in Swaziland.
Adam lived in Swaziland for two years and was able to see the real need for sponsorship. While there he spoke to the parents of sponsored kids who couldn’t afford to feed them or send them to school, but through the ministry of One Child Matters they were able to see their children cared for. His conclusion was clear—the power of sponsorship is multi-layered. It helps a child and helps a family, which in turn helps a community.
In his new role Adam revels in others seeing the need for sponsorship as they are empowered to change the world for one child.
Adam and Kim have been married for 13 years and they have one daughter, Zoe.
