Thon Dot visits the Cordova lower school campus

Thon Dot, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan, spoke to the 6th graders at Cordova this week. The class had completed a book study on "A Long Walk to Water" by Linda Sue Park. This story chronicles the journey of one of the Lost Boys on his travels from Sudan to Ethiopia to Kenya to the United States. Thon talked with the class about the struggles and dangers of his journey to freedom.  He currently lives here in Memphis. Thon reminded the students that no matter how bad things can get, God is in control, and he will bless you.
