Nepal clinic day 3

There are times when we wonder if what we do is worth it all. There are times when we realize that no matter what we think, life brings about a joyous moment. Here is a letter written by someone who has been sponsored the last 13 years. I need not say more after today's clinic. We are blessed.

"Dear Sponsor,
I am 18 years old and live in Nepal.  You have sponsored me since I was 5 years old.  Many things have happened in my life since you chose to help support me.  I now know Jesus, I am about to graduate and go on to college in computer science and I now volunteer teach computers at my school.  None of these would have happened were it not for God using you to help in my life.
I want you to know that I have kept every letter and card you have ever sent me.  What you have sent, I will treasure for a lifetime.  The best was that you gave so that I could be a man. You have prayed for me and even sent clothes for my mother.  I keep your photos and pray for you.
You see, my mom is my only parent, we are very poor, and she works in a hotel making just enough to pay our rent and food.  What you have done for my family has shown me one very important thing: in your eyes and in God's, one child really does matter."
