Time to Write (bump)

Our family has recently begun sponsoring a sweet little boy, Syrus through Compassion International.  Syrus lives in Uganda and we have received 2 letters from him already...we are so blessed to be a small part of his life!  We are BIG TIME fans of Compassion and believe wholeheartedly in the work they do in Jesus' name throughout the world.  

Compassion has sooo many awesome resources and ways to be a part of helping children in need.  You can donate online for your regular support or for Christmas or for your sponsor child's birthday...in April it was Syrus' birthday so we were able to send an extra gift to celebrate his birthday!  Since it's not possible to send packages, online donating makes it easy for everyone to make sure that your child has a very special celebration!  

Another super cool thing is that you can write your sponsor child online...hello?  Could they make it any easier for us?!  So I'm thinking, you know I should make it a point to write Syrus once a week to let him know we love him and are praying for him.  What better way then to do a reminder post each week on here...maybe you could use a reminder too?  It's TIME TO WRITE your child today!!  

Or if you are not sponsoring a child yet...maybe this might just prompt you to pray and consider if God would have you become a part of a child's life through Compassion by reading my posts??!  :D  Whaddya think?  Ready to be a sponsor YET?!!  Get on over there and see those precious children...

let's think about something simple like our use of clean water...a life necessity,
and imagine a child without that resource?

Little is Much.
It takes so little...

Hey Kate! I wasn't able to attend church this morning due to sickness, and the Lord directed me to your blog while I'm home alone in a quiet house. (a rare thing!) I had time to read much of your earlier posts, and in particular, all that God has brought your family through with Chloe's injury. Can I just tell you that I was moved to tears more than once? As a mother and as a fellow believer, I can so empathize with you! Your words are such encouragement to my heart and such a strong testimony. Thank you for being so honest, and for opening yourself up to share. You're really a special person -- and I'm so grateful that the Lord put YOU in my path as my new friend! God bless.

Awesome post about Compassion.

We sponsor a child from Peru! Fabrizzo. I do need to write him today! Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks for the fantastic reminder! We are sponsoring a little boy through World Vision and I have to admit that I've been negligent in writing him. I have to do that!
