over at Pioneer Woman's blog, she has been writing about her husband and two daughters' trip to the Dominican Republic to experience what Compassion International is all about and meet two of the children that they sponsor.
I, too, have sponsored a child thru Compassion for many, many years - Gobinie Hailu, who was born into horrible poverty in Uganda. Gobinie is clothed, fed, educated and receives medical care...all thru my $32 a month contribution.
That sponsorship was not a decision that came easily for me. Back then I was newly single, raising two children and trying to support a household on my own, but I did my research on the organization, then dove in....and guess what?
We have NEVER in these 7 years missed a meal because of my monthly contribution.
The above picture of Gobinie hangs on my wall here at work. I am able to write to her, send cards, pictures and if I was ever wanting to....I could visit. Gobinie sends me wonderful letters telling me of her faith, her family, her community and always includes a cute drawing.
As you read Pioneer Woman's blog, you see thru the eyes of her family, what a difference Compassion makes.
If you are even a little interested in sponsoring a child for $32 a month, go to Compassion International and find out everthing you need to know about this wonderful organization.
That is it folks.....just passing along some information.
with sponsorship hopes and elation
