  • The 3-Month Gap

    Date posted: August 10, 2017

    Twice a year, sponsors receive letters from their sponsored children.  These letters are written out of a deep love for the sponsor. The children want them to know all of their news because they know they are the ones who have chosen to care for them and they want them to be proud. We hope […]

  • Flood the Nile!

    Date posted: January 31, 2017

    Prior to the building of Aswan Dam, the Nile River would flood every year.  The flood waters carried a thick, black silt that, upon being plowed into the ground, provided rich, fertile soil.  It was only when those flood waters came that the ancient Egyptians could successfully grow their crops. Just as the flood waters […]

  • Defeating the Giant

    Date posted: November 4, 2014

    For generations, communities and families and individuals have been told it isn’t possible.  They’ve been told they aren’t good enough. They aren’t capable enough.  They aren’t worthy of the resources required.  Education won’t change their circumstances.  Their futures won’t change.  They can’t be changed. As this message has been passed down through generations, the belief in its words […]

  • The Quarry

    Date posted: September 5, 2014

    As you make your way from the desert road to the city of Minya, you can’t help but pay attention to the clouds of white.  At times it can look like a snowstorm has come through.  Other times, it can look like something you’d imagine in outer space.  The stark white stone, trucks piled high with […]

  • Worth 1,000 Words…Sometimes

    Date posted: July 22, 2014

    “A picture is worth a thousands words” It is common that as situations are described or plans are laid out, we desperately want to see a picture to get a better understanding.  We don’t write multi-page reports to describe how our children have grown.  We send photos.  We don’t pass around journals to describe our recent trip. […]

  • Fatherless, Widowed, and Lonely

    Date posted: July 9, 2014

    “Sing to God, sing praise to his name; extol him who rides on the clouds — his name is the Lord — and rejoice before him. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.   God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing…”  […]

    Guest Blogger: Chris Brad, the 50 year old leader of our group looked me in the eye and sternly said, “If I tell you to get on the bus, get on the bus.” Ten minutes later his voice rose above the noise as he said, “Get all the Americans inside right now.” And the somewhat […]
