Sponsored a Child in Uganda

Hi ‘Ya!

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.  Ron, Cheri, Trevor and Jenna, nice shot

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.

  1. We sponsor a young man named David from Kenya. We go through Childcare Worldwide! I need to get another letter to I’m. We hear from him every 6-8 months or so. Neat experience.
