Giving Hope Through Child Sponsorship

Picture Day!

"I was born ready to have my picture taken!"

“I was born ready to have my picture taken!”

Sponsors like to see how their kids are doing! We try to provide them with an updated photo of their child every two years. Do you remember how every Fall the photographer set up his screen on the school stage and took pictures of every kid, class by class? With around 650 kids that are individually sponsored, that’s us! But not really…we have enjoyed just interacting with the kids a little bit.

We will post a few shots that show how comfortable they are getting in front of the camera. Except for some of the little guys (who are still scared to death) they all like to see their photos on the camera!

What you don’t see is that we have to actually take TWO photos of each child, one of them holding a little wipe board with their name and number on it, and the other without. Unless we have those identifiers, we would have no clue who is who when the photos are downloaded.

"Did you just ask me to smile?"

“Smile? I’ll try this thing out!”

"My moment of fame, for sure!"

“My moment of fame, for sure!”

"This is a good thing, right?"

“This is a good thing, right?”

"Thanks for sponsoring me!"

“Thanks for sponsoring me!”

"I have done this before, no problem!"

“I have done this before, no problem!”

"I am smiling to thank my sponsor!"

“I am smiling to thank my sponsor!”

"I want to try something new!"

“I have to try something new!”

"I am grateful for a sponsor that loves me!"

“I am grateful for a sponsor that loves me!”

"Sponsor, you make me happy!"

“Sponsor, you make me happy!”

"I am all grown up now!"

“See, I am all grown up now!”

"Thanks for giving me an education!"

“Thanks for giving me an education!”

Now for a few that didn’t go quite so good…it is all in the eyes.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

"Are you going to shoot me?"

“Are you going to shoot me?”

That’s a small sampling of the beautiful kids that pass in front of our camera every week! Each one is special to a sponsor somewhere…loved and prayed for. Each one is special to God (who is everywhere)…especially loved and died for!
