Sponsored Kids – 2019 Progress Reports

Good morning, friends!  Over the last few days, I’ve received and opened around 200 letters from World Vision! These letters are the annual progress reports for each of our sponsored kids, so while it’s already quite the pile, I’m still expecting more. These progress reports list all the basics (name, age, health status, grade in school/if…


Sponsored Kids – Meet Jean Francois Ngorkhanuel

Happy #sponsoredkids Friday, everyone!  Let’s jump right in and meet this week’s kiddo, Jean Francois Ngorkhanuel!  JFN was born on Oct 12, so he will turn 8 tomorrow!  He’s from Niakhar, Senegal, where he lives with his grandparents.  He loves to play soccer and his favorite subject in school is singing (a kid after my own heart).  Happy Almost-Birthday, JFN!   While I’m tempted to…
