Surprise from Rwanda
I was so excited to receive a letter from the boy who we sponsor in Rwanda through the organization World Vision. He is not much older then my own son and we are learning that they have several interests in common. We also received a packet from World Vision that we can fill out and send to him for his 9th birthday in June, but I would like to see if we can purchase a small gift for him. Maybe a soccer ball? Since my son is now pretty good at writing I am going to sit down with him to help him write a letter back. Who knows, maybe they can even meet each other when we travel to Rwanda? Child sponsorship is really a great experience. I know that our money is being put to good use and that it is helping to ensure that he will receive a education, in addition to illness prevention and health education, because he lives in a area highly affected by HIV and malaria.
