You can read more about Laurent and his work in this article: Former Sponsored Child Gives Back to His Community. It's a very nice story.
This is my favorite picture from the article. We have the very same set of teeth and large green toothbrush where I teach and the kids love pretending to brush the teeth. It's nice to see that kids are the same all over the world.
Well, anyway, recently Laurent has been traveling to other Compassion projects to visit and to spend time with the children. On O.C, Laurent shares which projects he will be visiting and he asks if anybody has children in those projects, so that he can visit with the child and take a few pictures for the sponsors.
Laurent is such a nice guy!
A couple of weeks ago, Laurent posted that he would be visiting RW-420, which is where my sweet boy, Kwizera, attends. The children attend the project on Saturdays. Laurent visited with my Kwizera and his father yesterday and he sent me the pictures that were taken on Facebook. I love these pictures!
I love Kwizera's Dad's Smile!
Best part of these pictures? Everyone is holding something that I have sent Kwizera. His picture that I've decorated, a letter written on a sunset background, and other letters on notebook paper. I love that they thought to include these things in the letter. It's just amazing to see one of my beautiful children holding something I held in my hands or created.
And since I'm a pretty huge fan of close-up pictures of just my kids faces, I cropped these:
Seriously, I don't think he could get any cuter.
I am extremely grateful to Laurent and his heart to take time out of his life to visit these wonderful children. Not only that, I am so grateful that he is taking the time to provide pictures of these children to their sponsors, when he is able to. Seeing these pictures of Kwizera makes me love him so much more than I already did.
