A Child is Waiting

compassion.com

Have you ever thought about how little old you can make a difference in this great big world full of poverty? I  know, I have. And I want to share with you how I found a way to make a difference everyday!

We have a dear extended family member, Shaprine. We met her through an organization called Compassion that allowed us the opportunity to financially support her on a monthly basis and make a difference in her life. We will be forever grateful to be a part of her life and for each letter she sends us. It has been an incredible opportunity for our children to get to know her and love this young girl from Kenya. It's surprising how much they have in common considering how vastly different they live. It reminds us all to be grateful for all that God has given us and all the more willing to share those blessings and his hope with others.

You may be familiar with all the good work Compassion International is doing around the world. And they are looking for someone just like you to make a difference in the life of a child through sponsorship, letter writing and your prayers. All you have to do is visit their sponsorship page where an innocent child is just waiting for a sponsor to choose them...to give them hope, opportunity and encouragement. If you ever wanted the opportunity, look no farther. You've found it! Now go find them! Visit Compassion's Sponsorship page today and make a difference in a child's life! They are just waiting for you!

I would also like to tell you about a new group working to fight extreme poverty called NURU, which means, "light." They are teaching rural communities where people live on less than a dollar a day how to achieve self sufficiency through a variety of effective interventions. Learn more at Nuru International.

You can make a difference. We all can. We just need to do our part and let other know that they can too! May God bless us as we try to make a difference together.
