This morning I decided to put together a small care package for our World Vision sponsored child Nedira. We have only been sponsoring her for a few months (our previous boy in India graduated out of the program). We have had excellent communication with her family - it's been a delight to receive the letters.
Adrianna and Nate both decorated a card with stickers and drawings for Nedira and her family. I also included a floppy Canada hat and a Christmas card for her family and a few stickers etc. Anyway, while we were putting the package together, I took the time to gently teach the kids about Ethiopia and Africa. Then we watched some videos on Ethiopian landscape and Ethiopian food, listened to some Ethiopian music and learned a little bit about street kids in Addis Ababa and the difference between their lives and our lives here.
