He saw me first and was waving & waving. As soon as I saw him, I knew it was him.
In 5 years since we started sponsoring him, he has grown into such a young man! So polite, pulling the chair out for me.
He just kept hugging me & kidding my cheek. Again & again. He held me so tightly, like he just didn't want to stop. We cried together, held each other & got reacquainted in person.
His aunt came with him & she speaks quite a bit of English. We have a wonderful translator, too.
We had a nice dinner & just kept hugging each other.
Tomorrow, we will talk more, get more personal, speak of spiritual matters & play! Soccer & swimming are on the agenda for sure.
What a wonderful experience! Praising Jesus for this opportunity.
