Over the month that we have been home from Africa I’ve shared lots of stories! One story that I mostly share is what Ndoto exactly does.
We became sponsors for Ronnie when we returned home. He is a second grader that is dreaming of becoming a teacher. He is new to the Ndoto program and still learning english. Seth helped him write his sponsorship letter and we can’t wait to receive it! He almost got in a fight at the retreat because I gave him my left over chicken from lunch and another girl wanted it. Whoops!

This week I’m preparing for Africa. Something I would have never saw coming last year at this time. If you told me this last year I probably would have laughed and said okay, whatever you think!
