Did someone say spaghetti for breakfast? This Haitian dish is typically served as the first meal of the day. But for those of us who can’t quite get on board with the thought of eating pasta for breakfast, this makes a tasty lunch or dinner. (Full disclosure: I chose to cook this for dinner.)
Hi! My name is Reciprocal Letter, but you can call me RL. My friend, The Letter, introduced us last week. She’s staying in Malawi with her new owner, Grace, while I continue my journey from Malawi to my new owner’s home in Utah. Come along with me!
Hello, I’m a letter from a sponsor in Utah. I’m going on a journey to Malawi, in Africa. Along the way I’ll be joined by a friend I call RL—a Reciprocal Letter for a sponsored child to write back to my owner. But I'm getting ahead of myself. You’ll get to hear about his trip later. Please join me on my journey.
In December 2013, Precious became the first sponsored child from COTN–Sierra Leone to complete university. "It's a very huge honor," she smiles. "One I thought could never happen, even in my wildest dreams."
Way out in the fields of northern Uganda, a young cowherd was getting ready to sneak off to school. Whenever he found a large enough pasture for his cows, Isaac would weigh his chances—dash to school and get a few hours of precious learning in, or stay with the cows and make sure they don't run off?
A lot of talented photographers go on short-term mission trips to our ministry sites, and we're fortunate that many of them share their pictures with us. These are a few of our favorites from one such trip to the Dominican Republic. In fact, some of these adorn our walls here at the COTN office.
We hope you like them as much as we do. Tell us what you think, in the comments section below.
Every day, 1,033 children in Malawi eat a nutritious meal at one of our children's centers. Each month, 171 liters (or 45 gallons) of sunflower oil go into those meals. And now, all of that oil is made right on our farm, with the new sunflower oil extraction machine that people like you helped provide!
