I have been sponsoring her for 10 years. I told Melanys that I didn’t choose her, because I didn’t know which child to choose. Esther Wood had profiles from Compassion Sunday, and I knew I wanted a girl and preferably from South America. Esther prayed over the profiles and chose Melanys for me.Continue reading
