The following is a short transcript of a conversation Sherry recently had with one of Transformation Love's sponsored children who is now a 19 year old young woman. She recently graduated from high school and is now in college to become a nurse. She is an orphan who was cared for by her grandmother and been in our ministry for over ten years along with her two siblings.
(Note: Sherry is referred to as mom by most of our children)
Young Woman: "Hi mommy, how are you? I want to thank you for everything you have done for me today. I am a nursing student now. Thank you so much for being by my side. You are my role model. I have learned from your sincerity, goodness, and virtue. May God grant you a long life and health. Thank you so much mommy."
Sherry: "Thank you so much for sending this message to me. You have blessed my day. I am so blessed to be a part of your life. You have grown into a beautiful young woman. I am so happy you are in Nursing school. You will bless many people by being their nurse. Continue to work hard and do your best in school. God will bless you for all your hard work. I am praying for you."
Young Woman: "Thank you very much mommy. I hope to be a nurse and help people like you. Thank you for still helping me with my college education. I love you. You are the reason for my success."
Sherry: "Love you too! I am so happy to hear you want to help people. I am honored that I am your role model, but I am who I am because of God. He gives me my strength and fills my heart with love, so I can share it with all my Ethiopian children like you. I love you and I am so proud of you! You have worked so hard to get where you are at. I am so blessed to be your mom. Hugs!"
Young Woman: "Mommy you understand all the best. because you are the hope and the success of many children. I see God's kindness and love in you and it has changed my life because of you. I can do nothing but praise God. You have always invested in me and my life. All I can say is God be with you mommy."
Sherry: "Amen and thank you so much. You don't know how much I needed to hear all of this. Your words are what my heart needed. Take care, love you so much. Keep praising God for all the blessings you have in your life. Hugs."
Young Woman: "OK mommy, have a nice day and don't forget that I love you so much. Thank you from all my heart, beloved mommy."
