One more child sponsored.
We have chosen to sponsor a child from Indonesia through Compassion. There are many reasons why we have chosen to do this. Let me list a few:
1. This little boy needs us.
2. We need him.
We need the daily reminder to focus on others. His picture is posted in our kitchen where we see his sweet face often and are reminded to pray for him.
3. We need to be reminded of the blessings we have and use what God has given us to bless someone else.
If there is a poor man among your brothers in any of the towns of the land that the LORD your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward your poor brother. Rather be openhanded and freely lend him whatever he needs. Deuteronomy 15:7-8
Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Psalm 82:3-4
