Martinson Möter

Mattias Martinson möter - Richmond Wandera i ett specialavsnitt inspelat via länk. Richmonds barndom var smärtsam och utmanande, präglad av extrem fattigdom, sjukdom, förlust och hopplöshet. Hans familj gick ofta utan mat. Han led av malaria nästan ett dussin gånger, och hans far mördades. När han sponsrades och började gå på Compassions utvecklingscenter för barn i en lokal kyrka förändrade vården, utbildningen och kärleken han fick dramatiskt hans liv. När hoppet växte började Richmond snabbt utmärka sig i skolan. Efter examen valdes han till Compassions Leadership Development Program, vilket gav honom möjlighet att få en universitetsexamen. Detta formade till slut banan för hela hans liv och byggde i honom ett hjärta för att uppmuntra och inspirera till livsförvandlande förändring i individer, samhällen och nationer.
