Alec Johnson

Alec Johnson, who died December 23, 2014, in a drowning accident, was always captivated by knowing God, following Jesus in his lifestyle and in helping the poor, the disadvantaged, and the homeless. Educating poor children, especially orphans, was important to him. In working with the poor, he sought ways to “capitalize” them, to help them help themselves.

Sherie Renne

Sherie and her husband will celebrate 10 years of supporting Ugandan children in 2016. They started with Christmas gift shoeboxes, then sponsored individual children, visiting them twice, building a relationship with them that is still growing today. She grew to love the children of Uganda.

Angela Ross

Angela (the founder of Transforming Individual Lives Today) and her family also met new Ugandan friends through Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. As she corresponded with the family, she developed a personal connection. She and her family started by simply helping with immunizations.  She never dreamed where it would lead.
