Making A Difference

This week we got a letter from our sponsored child and an updated picture of her, too. It's always fun to get a new picture and see how much she's grown since the last photo was taken. Our little girl, Maria, lives in the Dominican Republic. We started sponsoring her in 2001 when she was just 3 years old. We have traded letters with her, seen her progress in writing, prayed for her during family devotions, and kept her picture on the refrigerator. We haven't had a chance to yet, but every year, we could be a part of a group to go visit Maria and other sponsored children in the DR. Sponsoring Maria has been a good way to start teaching Jacob and Savannah about being world Christians. It only costs us $32 a month to provide Maria with good meals, education, and the opportunity to learn about Jesus. I put a link to Compassion on the side if you want to find out more...
