Extra Love?

Do you and your family have a little extra love to share? All it takes is some love, prayers, a short letter every now and then, and $44 a month to change the life of a child through Compassion Australia.

I am fortunate enough to be a Compassion Advocate, and I currently am looking for sponsors for two children.

Let me introduce you...

This is Julia.
She is a beautiful 8 year old from Aldea El Sitio, Guatemala, where she lives with her parents and 4 siblings. She loves playing with her friends, basketball, playing jacks and playing house.

This is Erik.

He is 10 years old and lives with his parents in San Gaspar Chajul, Guatemala. Much to his mother's disgrace, his white shirt is dirty from being outside playing soccer (his favourite) with his friends, before he had to come inside and have his photo taken. He also loves playing with cars and singing.

Both these children are living in severe poverty in Guatemala, but with Compassion's Child Sponsorship Program, both Julia and Erik have opportunities that many other children could only dream about. Your sponsorship with provide such things as nutritious food, hygiene education, recreational activities, medical and dental care, tutoring, Bible teaching and educational support and literacy classes for the parents of Julia and Erik.

If you would like to add one or two members to your family, please let me know, these packets expire on 31st Aug.
