The Orphan Ministry links kids with sponsors. The sponsors write them letters, the kids write back, (less frequently) and we send updates and pictures of the kids.
One of the happiest times is when these kids actually get to meet their sponsors. It has happened for a few of the kids. This week Ken and Pastor McDearmon got to meet the boys that they are sponsoring!

Then Morgan Tembo was able to meet his sponsor that he has been writing for the last 2 years.
In his letters to the McDearmons he mentioned he wanted to be an auto mechanic. So Pastor McDearmon brought over some brochures on different cars, a die cast model car and a type of a mechanics handbook. It was so sweet to see Morgan ( in his very reserved Zambian way) very happy!
After they met their sponsored kids, the men spent time talking to some of the boys.
They really need male influences in their lives and seem to just eat up any time and attention that men can spare with them. They are always full of questions.
