Jane Sutton-Redner, the editorial director of our World Vision Magazine, first met Jhon in Peru – the “singer of his neighborhood” – when he was 6, back in 1997. She quickly arranged to sponsor him.
Jhon is 24 now, and Jane had the opportunity to visit him again last month! See the difference her relationship has made in his life, and the dream that came true for him that she hadn’t even wished for.
Adults tend to graft their own dreams onto their children. For example, I hope that my 8-year-old son will be a famous writer someday.
