A few weeks ago at church we had an opportunity to sponsor a child in Uganda. We took up the chance, and I just finished writing a hand written letter to our boy, Raymond, a 7 year old who lives with his aunt and brother in a mud-block house. We’re excited to get to know Raymond as we correspond with him. According to the information sheet about him, he hopes to be a pilot one day, enjoys math and music, and likes to read. He has a huge big smile and is described as active, friendly, intelligent, respectful, and well-behaved. Can’t wait to learn more about him in the coming years! Here’s the photo we enclosed in our letter.
This photo was taken a few months ago, on Thanksgiving, 2012. Our son Trevor is 22 now, and Jenna will be 20 in a few weeks.
Do you sponsor a child too? If so, I’d love to hear about your experience. If you’d like to sponsor a child through Children of the Nations, you can find out more through their website, Children of the Nations.
