We looked on, teary-eyed, as children met their sponsors and other children were sponsored after waiting for months. We prayed for the work that God is still doing in bringing restoration and hope to the poor. And yes, we celebrated the end of a decade. It only seems fitting that at the beginning of the new year, we reflect on where we’ve been. Read on to see what were our most popular blogs of 2019!
