Our kids are glad to have a new 'brother'. He's our sponsored child from Compassion International. He's from Kenya and is the same age with our daughter. Almost every night our kids pray for him and they would proudly show his photo to our friends who comes to the house.
I praise God for the privilege of being a blessing to someone far away, even in our own little ways. Our decision to sponsor a child from Kenya has been born out from our burden to pray for the people in Kenya and Somalia. If we truly look around and take out our focus away from ourselves, only the we realized that we have 'so much' that we can give.. so much that we can share.. to those who barely have the basic necessities in order to survive.
As shown from the life of John Wesley, "..with increasing income, what should rise is not the Christian's standard of living but the standard of Giving..."
We are indeed blessed to be a BLESSING!
