This is a quick post to say all is well. We’ve been going non-stop all day and Erica hasn’t had time to download the photos we took today so I can’t post new pics. But I promise to do so when we get home. We have to leave the hotel at 4am so that’s a 3:30am alarm time. Because of that, we’re hitting the sack!

Brief highlights of the day:

Erica got to meet her Compassion child. She’s a beautiful 3 year old. We also spent quite a bit of time with her mother.

I got to meet Jeremy and Jill Tracy’s sponsored child., Ever He and his father rode a bus for 4 hours just to meet us! We spent quite a bit of time with them before they had another 4 hour bus ride home.

Megan Kaeb got to meet her beautiful girl today. She has been sponsoring her for 8 years. She is a beautiful 14-year-old girl. Megan also got to spend wonderful time with the girl’s mom.

What struck me today is that when you are sponsoring a Compassion child, you are really partnering with another mom. It’s a beautiful concept and one that we have seen evidence of how well it works.

I will post many more pics and thoughts over the coming days. Thanks for coming along with us on this journey. Please pray for safe travels home—if all goes well we should be back in Bloomington-Normal, IL by 5:30pm tomorrow!
