We sponsor three children through Compassion International and I love reading when other bloggers (you know the real ones who actually post great stuff and have thousands of followers) go on trips with Compassion to meet the kids that are in the program. The purpose of their trips are to have the bloggers blog about the trip…put their trip into pictures and words…which will hopefully encourage their blog readers to sponsor children who are currently not being sponsored. I think it’s a fabulous system and know that so many children have been sponsored as a direct result of these bloggers.
There is a group of bloggers in Kenya right now and there are plenty of posts from them up already. I read through most of them tonight….and cried while reading a few of them….but this one really caught my attention…and for good reason.
For Christmas this past year we bought 3 cows, 3 goats and a bunch of chickens for families with children sponsored through Compassion. Reading this post made tears fall down my face….it’s so awesome to know that we may have had a very small hand in helping a grandmother like this one provide for her family.
