Sweet Moments

There are so many things I love about living in Burkina and being able to do the things we do. I can count about 30 things that made me smile just this week!

Yesterday we were able to meet with 2 of the widows in our sponsorship program. They had received letters from their sponsor so we came to read these letters to them. These ladies were so thankful to hear stories from their friend across the world. They listened intently and had really great reactions to the news that we shared. It meant so much that someone took the time to write to them.

Each shared a little about themselves so that we could let the sponsor know how they were doing. One suffers from chronic headaches and the others eye sight is failing, but they really had no complaints and said their health was good and just wanted to give blessings to their sponsor and her family, saying thank you again and again!


For me, I just enjoyed sitting with them, seeing their reactions and facial expressions and hearing them speak and laugh. It's the relationships that you build that are such a special blessing here!

  1. I never thought about writing to our sponsored widow! I am going to do that right away! Thanks, in advance, for sharing our words with her...and for all that you do!
