Come Let us Adore Him....
Children of the World are from the organization World Help one of the things they say is that they bring the mission field to us. It has truly made us aware of the orphans of this world. It is a small glimpse of the world.
We sent our first letter to Betlhem! I enclosed a picture of myself and I am so excited. I called Compassion International to ask some questions about a correspondent child. They are so nice and she explained to me that Betlhem has been in the program since 2004. I also asked if Alyssa could have a corrrespondent child and they said yes that would be allowed. Of course she was bouncing off the wall!
When we went to see the COTW we brought the chaperones and the leaders some Christmas candy. I made coconut balls & peanut butter balls.... they loved them. I asked the leaders if the next time we see the kids if we could bring "blow pops?" That is Jamira's favorite candy. They said "yes."
So we deck out the Christmas tree and we make the cookies and we light the candles, and Jesus whispers quiet, "But do not forget what I really came for...." ~Ann Voskamp A Jesse Tree Journey
Jesus comes looking for hearts...
