“For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” - 2 Corinthians 3:17
Last month, we introduced The Cotton Tree Collection. The Cotton Tree Collection is not only another way to support The Raining Season, but it is also symbolic of the Cotton Tree that sits in the center of Freetown, representing freedom. For the children we care for, that means freedom in Christ, freedom from the burden of sin, freedom from fear, freedom from poverty, freedom from hunger, and so much more.
However, the Cotton Tree Collection is so much more than a t-shirt. It offers hope and opportunity. The Raining Season depends 100% on the generous financial support of people like you through regular giving and sponsorship. Our goal is to be 100% funded through sponsorship. However, until we meet that goal, fundraisers like this allow The Raining Season to fill in the gaps, providing both the necessities and even some extras.
This is Fatmata. Fatmata dreams of becoming a lawyer. Proceeds from your purchase of a t-shirt in The Cotton Tree Collection help to ensure that Fatmata has opportunity through education so that one day her dream of becoming a lawyer just might become a reality.
This is Davida. Since Davida came to our center in 2019, she has had access to clean water and nutritious food every day. Because Davida is not fully sponsored, your support through purchasing a t-shirt guarantees that Davida continues to have access to three meals every day.
This is Memunatu. Because of your ongoing support, Memunatu was able to move into the Roots Apartment in January. Your purchase helps ensure that Memunatu has a safe place to stay and the support she needs as she transitions to adulthood.
This is Gabriel. When you purchase a t-shirt from The Cotton Tree Collection, it helps to ensure that Miracle Gabriel continues to receive essential medical care for his injury that initially left him paralyzed.
This is Alhaji. Because of The Raining Season, he has a caring staff to love and disciple him. Your new t-shirt also means that Alhaji has a staff that provides spiritual nurturing to him on a daily basis.
Supporting TRS through The Cotton Tree Collection will empower The Raining Season to continue to grow, dream, and envision an even better future for the children we serve in Sierra Leone. It will allow us to meet ongoing needs where sponsorship falls short.

Your willingness to link arms with us helps us to fight for this mission TOGETHER.
