Welcome to the family Gitonga!

Dear Gitonga,
Yesterday, Del and I became your Sponsors through Compassion International. We could not be more excited about having you as part of our family. You see, for a while now we've been wanting to sponsor a child...but we would log onto Compassions Website and just think "how could we ever choose?" I kept thinking, "maybe there is a child with our anniversary date", but we kept getting the same answer "no results found". Well as God would have it, yesterday at church our pastor reminded us about Compassion Del and I decided that it was the day to make a decision and start sponsoring a child. I prayed that The Lord would make it clear as to who we were suppose to sponsor and if He would have it, that the child would maybe have our anniversary as their birthday. So, we logged on & entered the information and guess whose name popped up....YOURS! You were the ONLY ONE with that birth date. Isn't our God amazing to answer such specific prayers...even when we doubt? We can't wait to get your packet of information and start sending you letters. We pray that even though distance separates us, you would feel loved and cherished. You are a special child and we count it a privilege to be called your sponsors.
We hope you have an amazing week!
Del & Chelsea
