Dear sponsor, your letters are a lifeline…with love, your sponsored child.

Letters have the power to transcend time. A thoughtful letter can be treasured for years. Ask anyone who’s ever received one, they’d describe the glee they felt when they first pulled out that envelope from the letter box and how tears pooled in their eyes as they read words that almost immediately encouraged, uplifted, and […]

Resilience and impact: Celebrating Asian Heritage Month

I have been Asian for over 25 years. In the many different seasons of my life, navigating my Asian identity has looked different as I’ve also fit the pieces together of my identity as a woman, Canadian, writer, daughter… and ultimately as a follower of Jesus. This most recent season has been a particularly striking […]
