The excitement of a family reunion can include introducing a new member of the family, such as a child born in the past year.
With all the technology today, there is still nothing quite like seeing and touching a loved one.
Many of our sponsors have written and prayed for their sponsored child, and have exchanged photos. But deep inside, their desire is to see their child. Over and over, I have witnessed a sponsor meeting their child for the first time in Haiti or in the Dominican Republic. Our mission knows and appreciates the impact in the life of the child—feeling and receiving love and affection from their sponsor.
Please know we encourage your face to face visit with your sponsored child. We believe in your mission to be the impact to see a life changed for God, family and community. Most of all, this blessing of love boomerangs right back to us, and we are loved and encouraged in our child-sponsor relationship. ~Jeanne DeTellis
