A friend recently showed me some footage from a mission's trip he took with World Vision to Rwanda. As I watched, a particular scene stuck with me; it was that of a little 3 year old boy sitting on the ground, eating dirt. Each time he grabbed a handful of dirt and put it in his mouth, he groaned in pain, and I felt my heart break a little more.

Sponsor a Child
My experience moved me to action and I applied and partnered with World Vision as a Child Ambassador. My job is to try to get sponsors for as many children as I can for a mere $30/month, or $35/month for a hope child (a child living in an area that is greatly affected by the AIDS epidemic). I would sponsor a hundred kids if I could, but if I did that, I would need a sponsor myself :) As I write this, a song by Casting Crowns resounds in my head,
"But if we are the Body
Why aren't His arms reaching
Why aren't His hands healing
Why aren't His words teaching
And if we are the Body
Why aren't His feet going
Why is His love not showing them there is a way"
I am pleading with you all now to please open up your hearts and consider sponsoring a child. I have done my research and even met a lady that was sponsored years ago, and this is totally legit. Your donations go towards providing a better life for a child, and you can even choose to go visit 'your child' to see what exactly is being done, once you start sponsoring one. I am visiting El Salvador next year to go visit, little Kelien, one of my sponsored children.
Please tell me you will! You can visit Sponsor a Child to find out a bit more and sponsor a child. Feel free to drop me a note with any questions or concerns.
Thank you for allowing yourself to be a vessel through with God spreads his love and compassion!
