My wife and I sponsor a brother and sister in the Philippines and a 17 year-old girl in India. I am also the primary coorespondent to a 10 year-old boy in India, that our church sponsors. I am overwhelmed on a daily basis as I visit the CFCA website and their associated blog page to read about the heartfelt experiences of the sponsors, staff, and the sponsored friends.

My Mission Awareness Trip (MAT) to the Philippines intensified my admiration for CFCA's efforts. You can not go on a MAT and not be emotionally effected when you visit your sponsored friend's family and home and they show you the letters and pictures you have sent over the years. While there is great joy in meeting your friend(s) there is also the reality of their situations...it is eye-opening.

The good news is our monthly contributions go a long way to improving their situation. I also learned CFCA will assist sponsors, if they are willing to contribute in other ways to assist their friends. My wife and I donated money to our sponsored friend in India to buy a sewing machine so the family had another way to generate income. They also helped us buy a guitar for our kids in the Philippines.

My church just began sponsoring a boy in India and I'll be going on the Oct Mission Awareness Trip to visit him and our family's sponsored girl. I am so pleased that CFCA arranges these trips which enables our relationship with our kids to blossum.

God bless the children and aging helped by CFCA and God bless the CFCA staff around the world.
