Bring Hope to One Child at a Time
Have you ever considered sponsoring a child in an impoverished area of the globe? But not got around to it yet.
Reminds me of a joke card I once got which had a plastic circular coin with the words
"A Round TOIT.:-) Now you've got one, Daniel."
Yes, I, too, often put off the truly important to take care of the major, minor, and even the trivial. Why do we humans do that?
I guess it is one of those irrational quirks that psychologists say we humans often display.
Anyway, now that you have your own "round TOIT" (just cut it out of the screen;-), consider finding at least one child
of the millions suffering in poverty.
Choose a worthy, financially accountable aid organization such as World Vision.
My wife and I've sponsored children since the 1970's in countries
as diverse as Palestine, Indonesia, and India.
One small 5-year-old girl we sponsored back in 1995 had almost no choice, and no future.
Only a harsh existence, living in deep poverty. And she was often without her mother and father most of the time.
But with a small amount of donation monthly, she was able go get good food, schooling, improvements of their community,
and so much more.
NOW 20 years later, that girl has grown up and recently finished nurse's college
and has many career opportunities--the world at her door!
What a difference!
“…poverty doesn't come from a series of choices, but rather a lack of choices.
Meet these two brave mothers who find themselves in difficult times … and make your own choice.”
World Vision, Nate Pyle
