A Sponsor's Reflection

Heather and Vivian I was blessed to meet Vivian, the child I would be sponsoring, in the summer of 2017 when I had the opportunity to go to Kapeeka, Uganda to help the children of St. Jerome COVE School. It was an experience that was life changing for me. Upon our meeting there was a joy that I can’t even begin to describe. When Vivian started school, we exchanged letters. Vivian’s letters usually began with a drawing of a big heart that says “I Love You” and she always wrote that she was doing her best and was working hard so that she could be a nurse - her lifelong dream. As the letters continued, she mentioned that school was becoming more difficult and her report cards showed her grades were less than average. One of her teacher’s commented that Vivian was having trouble seeing the board, even when sitting in the front of the classroom. It was determined that Vivian had poor vision and needed glasses, after which her grades and her confidence improved as she continues to work toward her goal of becoming a nurse. Now it is a priority that all children at St. Jerome are screened for vision on a regular basis so that each child can work to his/her full potential and become successful. As I reflect on my visit to St. Jerome COVE School and meeting my sponsored child, I feel so blessed that Vivian gifted me with her joy-filled spirit. This is something that will remain in my heart forever. I pray that others will have the opportunity to experience this too!
