Decide to Make A Difference . . .

A few years ago we sponsored a child through the Christian’s Children’s Fund. It was a pretty rewarding experience in that we knew the money we were providing actually went to that child and her family. She would send us letters and drawings and pictures she colored, and keep us up-to-date on how she was progressing and growing. I still have a picture of her , her sister and grandmother on my refrigerator and I think of her often. The money went towards providing everything from medical care to school books, shoes, clothes, and anything else she needed as she continued on her journey. A little money goes a long way.

Last week I made the decision to sponsor another child and did just that. This time I was able to browse through a database of children and actually see a small picture of each one. Each picture was accompanied by a brief description of the child’s situation and needs, where they lived, how the family made a living (or didn’t), etc. I browsed through the pictures until my heart told me to stop on a picture of a little girl from Honduras. She is seven years old and, as I found out later, has the same birthday as me. What are those odds? So I decided to sponsor her.

If you haven’t thought about it before, look into sponsoring a child through the Christian’s Children Fund. The process couldn’t be made any easier and the rewards last a lifetime. The cost is nothing.

Decide to make a difference.
