And the Family Keeps Growing!

I had a lovely surprise today, a email from Compassion saying "I couldn't resist, here's three more correspondence children for you"..

Well, what could I say?!

God rewards the faithful, He sees what we do - nothing goes unnoticed.  So Thank You for expanding our family some more!

Please join me in welcoming:

Tomalika, 8 years old from Bangladesh.  She enjoys playing with dolls and skipping.  The area where she lives is very, very poor.  It is isolated by rivers, which has the very high risk of flooding, means crops do not grow in the salty soil, and the only safe drinking water is rain water.

Jose is 11 years old (his birthday is this Friday) from Ecuador.  He enjoys soccer, playing with cars and story telling.  His community is in desperate need for clean drinking water.

And, this is Victor.  He is 12 years old and lives in El Salvador.  He enjoys soccer and riding a bike.  His community has many issues such as gangs, diseases, drug addiction, alcoholism and witchcraft.  Despite living in those conditions, Victor manages to have a smile that would light up a room!

I feel so blessed to add these beautiful children to our family.  This also means three new countries to  learn about.  Now time to make some room for their photos on the fridge! :)
