First hand report from a sponsor on meeting her sponsored child
Having met some of the children earlier on in the week at Amazing Love today was the day we were to give out the gifts many of us have lovingly bought for our sponsored children. It was also the day I would properly get to meet Precious who my family sponsor. It was emotional to say the least. Especially talking to Precious, showing her pictures of my family and she remembered my dad who visited 2 years ago which is amazing. She looked so well and happy, having seen her face everyday on the fridge at home it was so special finally meeting her.
I have always loved gift giving, even more so than receiving. There is something about buying something special and the anticipation of waiting and watching that person unwrap it and seeing joy. This was exactly what happened today. Despite their shyness you could see the pure joy in their eyes as they opened their bag and unwrapped their presents. For many this may have been the first time they have received something brand new that is theirs to keep.
