A sponsor’s gift improves a teen’s living conditions
Find out how a modest renovation is bringing joy to Roland in Paraguay
A sponsored child in Paraguay was recently surprised with a gift from his sponsor, which meant his family could finish his bedroom.
They updated the room with finished walls, flooring and furniture. “[I] just wanted to thank you,” he said to his sponsor in a letter. “Now I have my own new bed, closet and new floor. Thank you very much and blessings to your family.”
Watch the video for a look at Roland’s room before and after the update.
