Mongolia – an exotic and faraway land; a country that I knew very little about. So when our Human Resources department presented World Vision’s list of children up for sponsorship*, I chose to sponsor a child from Mongolia; out of curiosity more than anything else. That was 4 years ago. Little did I know then that this decision would lead to an eventual trip (company sponsored!) to that very country to meet with my sponsored child.
A group of 13 strangers embarked on a journey to Tien Lu earlier this year in April. They met with different stories but ended with a shared inspiration – that it is not so much about what they can give to the poor but what being among them can do to enrich their lives.
