11 Kids Still Waiting for a Sponsor Family!!

**UPDATE**  As of 8:35 PM (CST), Wednesday, July 7, there is only 1 child at Trees of Glory care-point that is waiting to be matched with a sponsor family!!

Of 84 children at "Trees of Glory" care-point in Ethiopia, there are still 11 children waiting to be matched with a sponsor family!  In about 30 days, 73 children have already been matched with a sponsor family (which is fantastic!!!) but it's at this point that I start to worry about the few remaining children. 

I know the feeding program is getting off the ground, and lives are already being transformed around them. 

But at some point in the very near future, the waiting children are going to notice that when letters arrive, and all the other kids are eagerly anticipating their name being called so they can get a letter and have it read to them .... that their name is not being called, and there is no letter for them.

If you have been thinking about sponsorship, and feeling that tug on your heart ....

perhaps right now

is the exact right time

to take the step, and sponsor a child. 

You will be AMAZED at the impact it has for that child ... and you'll be amazed at the impact it has on YOU!

Please contact me at kjwistrom@yahoo.com and let me know if you have a preference to sponsor a boy or girl - or no preference.  I will then send you a photo of the child and biographical information, along with  instructions on how to register as that child's sponsor through Children's Hopechest (http://www.hopechest.org/). 

Also - I will be travelling to Ethiopia in November to spend time with each and every one of these kids - and I will personally deliver a letter, photos and a HUG from you to your sponsor child!  And I will tell them over and over how much they are loved, and prayed for by their sponsor family.  And how worthy they are of your love!!!  In such hopelessness and despair ... these words in your letters make all the difference to a child who is alone in the world.

Here is the list of children that are still waiting ...

Mekdes (girl), 6 years old  (Update: Mekdes has been matched with a sponsor family!!)
