#72 - Our New Children

I am so thankful that we are in a position to add more sponsored children to our family. Here are our newest...

Luis is from El Salvador...I chose him because I wanted another boy and we had not sponsored anyone in El Salvador yet.

Yoselin is from the Dominican Republic. She shares the exact same birthdate at Sydney...January 5, 2005.

Lian lives in Columbia. I was looking for a "birthday buddy" for Kayleigh, but couldn't find the same day. Lian was 5 on October 10th and she enjoys singing, playing house and playing dolls...a perfect fit for Kayleigh.

I am very excited to begin helping the girls understand sponsorship and get them involved. They are already excited to pray for Yoselin and Lian and like having their pictures in their room.

Lord....THANK YOU for blessing us with the resources we need and the ability to be involved in the lives of these precious children. THANK YOU for opening our eyes to the importance of each and every life around us. THANK YOU for ministries like Compassion - allowing us to be your hands and feet.

I can't wait until Pk is a little older and we can involve her in this, too. It is so important for children to grow up with a real-world connection to need and to how to be "God's hand and feet."
