compassion.

yesterday i told you all i'd be back to tell you more about compassion international.
well, here i am.
and with a heavy heart.

do you know how many children are living in extreme poverty? how many children are living with HIV or aids in an area where there isn't sufficient medical care? how many children are without mommy's and daddy's to tuck them in at night, kiss their little lips, and tell them good night?



my hearts ACHES for these children.
these countless children.

i often tell my husband that i would love to adopt one of these kids.
i tell him that if he sent me on a missions trip that i would come home longing for one of these children.

my heart hurts for them right now as i type this.
my desire is for every child to have a full belly, a healthy body, a forever mommy and daddy, and a knowledge of their savior.
most importantly, a knowledge of their savior.
each of them would be rich beyond any earthly possession if they knew Jesus.

here's what you can do to help.
i won't ask you to sponsor a child today.
i will only ask for you to click here and pray for these children.

say a prayer that the little boy or girl you're looking at will receive sponsorship.
pray for him or her to come to know Jesus.
call your own children over to the computer and introduce them to the little face you see on your computer screen.
use that time as a life lesson on children in other countries who have far less than us americans.
gaze into the eyes of that precious child and think about what he or she might be doing on this day.

will you do that today?
pray.

should you feel led to sponsor a child {or two} today you are helping a child in such deep need.

remember, 3,108 precious children is the goal of compassion international for the month of september.

I'm blogging too, yay! We have sponsored a beautiful girl for the past 10 years through Compassion. Though we have been sponsoring her, I am positive she has been an even bigger blessing to us!

We have been sponsoring a little boy for 10 years now - it's amazing what it has done for his family. From what we can tell. Compassion is such a great program!

I am praying for several of the children on the Compassion site. Thank you for sharing!
