Meet & Support Brilli: Our Unbound Child of the Month


Editor’s note: I hope you enjoyed traveling with me to India as I met my Unbound sponsored elder Lourdhumary. I can attest firsthand to the impact of sponsorship not only on those we help to support, but also on our own lives. I hope as we anticipate the season of Lent that you will pray about how coming into relationship with a sponsored friend and how truly walking in companionship with those in need might be part of your Lenten journey this year.

We’re thrilled to again be partnering with our friends at Unbound to be a part of their service to families around the world. Each month, Unbound joins us at to offer you the chance to partner tangibly with them by prayerfully considering sponsoring a child or aging friend. If I can personally answer any questions for you about sponsorship or my own encounters with Unbound, please do not hesitate to reach out! Thank you for joining us in this important mission. Please keep the work of Unbound and all of those who serve those in need in your prayers! Lisa Hendey

Meet Brilli!


8 year old Brilli from Colombia loves math and dancing!

Brilli is a beautiful eight-year-old girl growing up in Colombia. Her favorite subjects are math and Spanish. She always performs well in school and dreams of finishing her studies at a dance academy. She helps her family at home by washing the dishes and making the bed.

Brilli lives with her mother and father.  Her mother is a housewife and her father is a welder in a motorcycle shop. They use his income for rent, health, education, food and other expenses. The three family members all live together in a small house made of wood and cement.

By sponsoring Brilli, she will begin to receive the tangible benefits such as education and nutrition. This will also provide the family to be fully integrated in a local caring community, with programs and services designed to improve their quality of life and empower them to break the cycle of poverty.
