For my wife’s birthday a few years ago, we sponsored a child through Compassion International. Manuu lives in India, and is very close in age to my oldest son. We know that he lives in a very rural area of India, and his mother is unemployed and his father is sometimes employed as a farmer. We have worked hard to make Manuu a part of our family by teaching our kids about where he lives, and what his life may be like. (See the India Family Night…)
I don’t know if I’ll ever meet with Manuu. I know that he’s learning read the letters we write to him, and I know that by making my monthly support to Compassion International I am helping in some small way. This month I’ve got a Compassion International as a new site sponsor and I’m thrilled that it’s an organization my family and I already support.
If you are not sponsoring a child through Compassion or joining them in their relief efforts in areas of the world that need them; then start today. There is a child somewhere out there that needs what your family can offer them. It may possible be the best $38 a month that you ever spend!
