While they are headed back to the states from Uganda, many of my co-workers left yesterday for Kenya! They will be visiting with some Compassion International sights and meeting LDP (Leadership Development Program) students who may be traveling with them throughout the summer. LDP students have been through the Compassion International child sponsorship program and our now in college/university in their home country while still being sponsored. It's an incredible program and to meet some of these men and women who are breaking the cycle of poverty while finding true hope in Christ has been life changing. I'm always a little jealous that I don't get to travel but I always love hearing the stories and seeing the life change.
If you are not already sponsoring a child, I would highly encourage you to get involved. Not only is it the opportunity to change the life and future of a child but it will surely change yours as well. The video below is of one of the LDP students who traveled with one of our summer staff teams.
Unfortunately, not much of an update on our progress, please pray for us to receive my Background/Criminal History check. It's the last piece of paperwork we need for our Homestudy!
