A Tribute To Our Sponsors & Friends!

This is a tribute to our sponsors and friends from one of our boys. This was a class assignment for prose & poetry. It is entitled "MY JAJJA'S," this is what the kids call us, it means grandparents. But the only reason we are able to do our work is because of you and your good gifts, we only have the love for the kids but you make it all happen! Please see what all this means to this one boy.


What a wonderful gift.
They are so caring and loving.
So Marvelous!

What a wonderful gift.
They pay for my school fees.
They provide me with food
Oh so marvelous!

They teach me how to talk English
And they advise me to practice it all the time.
What nice jajja's they are!
Oh so marvelous!

They make sure that I have everything.
They advise me on things that will help me.
Oh so marvelous!

They encourage me when I lose hope
And they teach me to believe in Jesus.
Oh they are really so Marvelous!

By John Travis

John is a very quiet young man and for him to approach me with this, is really a big thing! We are his only family and it has been great to see him grow since February when he joined us. It is actually difficult to just give a little background on John because I think he has enough stories to write a book. He witnessed losing his parents in the Rwandan Genocide around 1995 and somehow, by the Grace of God, he is OK!

Thank you to all our sponsors and friends! May God bless you!
