Sarah’s Story

Life changing! Today was a day I will never forget and I pray it will always have an affect on me. Today we went EVERYWHERE. Our first stop was to a school where we would see the classrooms, thank the teachers, and give out soccer balls. I was excited to finally be in Africa doing what I came to do, but NOTHING could have prepared me for what was ahead.

As the cars drove into the school yard, and we got out of the vehicles, children started running to the windows of their classrooms and started yelling and saying “jambo” (which means hello). I will NEVER forget that sound, it was unlike anything I’ve ever heard before. The only way I can think to describe it is the sounds you hear at a concert when the artist first comes out on stage. The major difference is that I am not a celebrity and these children have never met me before and yet they were so excited to see us. I felt so unworthy and humbled and yet overcome with love from these children’s smiling faces. I immediately started to cry. How could children who live in a third world country be so overcome with joy at just seeing my face? I had come to Africa to bring hope, joy and love to these children and there I was standing, overcome with love, joy and hope that THEY were giving to ME!
