More on Compassion

So once again I am going to talk about... Compassion.
Seriously, it is an amazing organization. For only $38
a month, you can sponsor a child. The money will
enable the child to live a better life as well as have the
opportunity to learn about Jesus. I have been sponsoring
Kevin for several years and it has been such a rewarding
experience. But you may be saying, "I can't afford it!"
I was only thirteen when I started and had no income, but
God has provided. I have learned what I need with what
needs to be done. You are not just sending money to
a stranger, you are investing in a relationship with a child.
A child with a name. A child who will love you and will
love every single letter you send. Pray and spend time with
God asking what He wants you to do. If He wants you to
invest your time and resources into a child, He will enable
you to do so. Compassion International is not just a gift
for the child, it is a gift for the sponsor as well. Click here

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is approaching, cookies are baked, snow is
falling and presents under the tree. I am reminded this
Christmas just how blessed I am. I have a wonderful
family, an amazing church I am blessed to be a part of,
great friends, a super job and I have a home, food,
clothes and everything else I tend to take for granted.
I also have been saved by grace. That completely amazes
me! God saved ME!!! And Christmas is where he came
down to earth! A great movie to watch is the Nativity Story.
It is truly amazing!!! :) I hope you all have an amazing
God bless

There is currently a blizzard where I live and it is amazingly beautiful.
It also makes me realize just how blessed I am to have a warm house
and that I don't have to be outside in the FREEZING cold! When I went
to Jamaica and Ecuador, the kids there had never seen snow and it was
really fun trying to explain it. Isn't God amazing!? :)
Hope you have a great day!
God bless!

Operation Christmas Child

Yesterday, I volunteered at Operation Christmas Child which is an amazing organization that distributes Christmas presents in shoe boxes to children who are poor and in need. Their Mission: "To demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ." People all over America pack shoe boxes with gifts and then OCC sends them to children all over the world. Last year, 8 million children received a Christmas shoe box. Since 1993, 130 countries have received these shoe boxes! That is amazing!

You can learn more about OCC at their website which is here.

Have a great week!
God bless!
