Having lunch one last time with our sponsor son at a super posh hotel was really fun. We told him it was his opportunity to dream. He stared at the swimming pool for a long time and giggled when we splashed him with the water. It was hard to say goodbye to him and hardest for Darren. He cried and cried… he told me his heart hurt to say goodbye to him. I told him that the hurt means that he truly has opened his heart and although it hurts he has created a connection that will last a lifetime.
We hiked through the countryside visiting homes and bringing them much needed food. It was beautiful to see their smiles even with the little they have. They are so happy to see us – we represent hope for them. When you say muraho (hello) to them they consider you a friend… I have many new friends and gave lots of smiles and hugs.
