It Really Does Matter....

I am sharing this week about the Compassion Bloggers who are in Uganda.  If you wonder if it really matters that you sponsor a child/children on the other side of the world...  YOU need to read this post. It isn't long... but it is right to the point.  Even though we have sponsored since 2008 reading/watching this blog post ... reaffirmed how very important I/we are to them!  
I can not begin to tell you how sponsoring a child has changed us! You see ....  we sponsored to help them, give them hope, let them hear the gospel... give them medical attention.... food....   and in doing that....   it changes us.  I truly believe by our family sponsoring a Compassion child it helps to teach my children to NOT live the American Dream. I truly believe ....  loving others and serving others ... being the hands and feet of Jesus teaches my children to not focus so much on themselves and they start putting others needs ahead of their own....   it truly gets in deep with them.   I have seen this in Lysa's life.....   and I can see this happening in Wyatt's life.....   funny how it happened when they were both around the same age.  Cool, huh?

So hop over and read The Nester's blog post as she is in Uganda this week.   You will love it. You will want to do the happy dance....  

If you do not sponsor... will you click here and look at the faces of children waiting to be sponsored? You can pick one with the same birthday as yours or maybe one that has been waiting the longest?  Or maybe you want an older child.   It will change their life and yours!

You can matter to someone on the other side of the world!
