Hooray for Besha

A few months ago we told you how Besha Asefa is overcoming his physical challenges through weightlifting and wheelchair racing. Full Story

Despite severe setbacks in his life, which include contracting polio at age one, abandonment by both of his parents, and becoming a victim of familial violence that resulted in a broken hand, Besha has grown into a physically and mentally strong young man.

We asked for help in meeting Besha’s training needs, and our BCI family quickly stepped in to ensure that we could provide Besha with the nutrition and equipment needed for his training and competitions.

We are thrilled to report that Besha is now the proud owner of a gold medal from his most recent weightlifting competition.

We are so delighted for Besha, grateful for your support of his athletic endeavors, and humbled by God’s hand in his life.
