After a day of meeting and interacting with the children at the Young Living Academy, Young Living members on the 2016 Platinum Retreat in Ecuador were able to visit at least one of the homes of a child that they sponsor. Each of the families welcomed the members with hugs and kisses and expressed their gratitude in special ways. With the help of a personal translator, the members saw where their sponsored child played and did their homework; they talked about things they have in common and built a more personal relationship with the child and their family.
It’s hard to put into exact words what this experience meant for the members. Most were actually at a loss for words afterward. In all, the opportunity to cultivate a personal relationship with their sponsored child was such an amazing gift that lives were touched and greatly impacted.
Thank you to all the amazing members who served whole-heartedly during the 2016 Platinum Retreat in Ecuador. The children at the Young Living Academy are hardworking, motivated, and joyful children who are being taught to live healthy lives, develop leadership skills, and to become a strength to their family and community. We trust that you got to see that first hand and got to see the incredible difference your donations and child sponsorships are making in the children’s lives at the Young Living Academy.
