Makes My Monday: A Sister for Sarah

After an incredible Sunday Children's Sabbath, led by our church's 2nd and 3rd graders (He-Twin and She-Twin provided half the day's ministry staff) and an inspirational, enthusiastic performance by the Ugandan Orphan Children's Choir, Sarah initiated some international outreach of her own...



The letter reads:
"Dear Sewmila, My name is Sarah. I am 9 years old. I live in Richmond, Virginia in the United States of America. I sponserd [sic] you in Childcare Worldwide program. There should be a picture of me in the envelope. There is also a crown shaped bracelet in there, too. I am very excited to hear back from you. Please write me back. Your friend, Sarah. P.S. Your smile is very cute."

Sarah's genuine desire to help---not simply with finance, but with friendship---Makes My Monday.
