Dear Sponsor, Greetings in the name of Jesus. I am Agnes Hotay; I have been the Country Director of Compassion Tanzania for the last three years, but I joined the ministry 14 years ago. I have been married for 15 years and my husband and I are blessed with three children: Hannah (13), Joshua (10), and Caleb (5). My best moments are during praising and worshiping God. I love singing, especially leading worship songs.open_in_new Read full letter
