“When we arrived at the center in Cochabamba, Bolivia, Genesis (our sponsored child) came RUNNING through the courtyard to meet us … I fell into a complete puddle of mush! I wish that I could put into words what the entire experience was like, but I’m still processing it all. It is for sure something that we will never forget! I am forever changed.”
“All my worries about it maybe being awkward and we wouldn't have things to talk about were squashed immediately with Jonathan’s enthusiasm to meet me as he greeted me with a big hug and huge smile! So cute! … It was really special and I’ll never forget it!”
“I looked up and there he was! I knew him, nearly knocked over the table getting to him, and cried (as I knew I would) as we hugged for a long time! … I spent nearly the entire weekend in tears! Everyone we met has been so warm and welcoming, gracious, kind and open with us. It was very difficult to leave.”
“I immediately went over and embraced him. I couldn't believe my eyes. The boy to whom I had been writing letters and sending photos was standing next to me in the flesh. How grown up and handsome he looked at 14 years of age!"
“I am so grateful for this privilege to be able to make such a difference in someone’s life. More than that, I realize how significant my visit has been to the children. It was one of the most rewarding days I have experienced.”
