Maybe it's just me but do you ever have one of those days where you think "My life is kind of hard........I need to get dinner cooked and I have all this laundry to get done and my house is dirty and I haven't had a moment to myself today and I need to go to the grocery store............"
Then I travel to a different continent and visit a home where a family of NINE live in a house probably the size of my living room. I only saw three beds.
I look around at the dirt floor and the dark crowded rooms. I look at the open spaces where the roof meets the walls but doesn't completely cover.
I look at a mother who is my age but looks about 15 years older. I look at a mom who gets up at 5:30 to make breakfast for her 7 kids. I hear her talk about how she never went to school and can't read or write.
It's dark and hot in their house.
"not because she felt guilty or because she had a ton of money to spare...............but because she loved God and wanted to serve Him".
Look at this little girl? It's the Ecuador version of Harper/Hollis in her smocked dress! I loved her and it made me miss my girls so much!
Maybe you want to feel the joy that comes from serving and giving because you have been given so much?
I'm telling you that you CAN make a difference! Will you sacrifice something small in your life and sponsor a kid today? And know you are making an eternal difference!
