I am planning to go to Peru in August with Compassion International. This is an advocate tour and my first opportunity to see Compassion's work with my own eyes. I am very excited. Although we do not sponsor any children in Peru, I have recently begun corresponding with a boy named Claudio. It will be fun to meet him and get to know him even better. His birthday is January 9...same as Sydney!
Anyway, I put my name on a waiting list to correspond with an LDP student and mentioned that if any were available in Peru, that would be ideal since I am going there. I got a phone call that David, a third year LDP student, has never had anyone correspond with him. Just today, I received his photograph and information about him. I am excited to get to know him, and then meet him face to face.
God is so good...even in the little details of our lives. I am thankful for this opportunity - both to correspond with David and eventually meet him.
