Another Piece of My Heart

Two weeks ago was Puguh's Birthday! I first started sponsoring Puguh when he was only 6 years old. I can't believe he just turned 12. I remember the first letter and picture I got from this sweet little boy telling me all about himself.

It has truly been such a blessing to watch him grow into such smart, talented young man with a heart for Jesus. I am so excited whenever I get a letter or an update in the mail from him. I can't wait for when my son is a little older and I can share all of this with him and have him write Puguh a letter. Puguh feels like a part of our family even though we have never met him. He will always hold a special place in my heart. I pray that one day I will get to meet him and his family.

Making the decision to sponsor a child has truly been one of the most rewarding things I have done in my life. Knowing that I am able to help a life grow in the knowledge of Christ and help provide for his education fills me with such great joy. I have been blessed beyond measure during this journey!

Maybe you are feeling led to sponsor a child too. For only $38 dollars a month you can, through Compassion International. This organization is truly amazing in so many ways. They truly live up to their name and put every effort into helping release children from poverty all over the world.

Here is a short clip of my Compassion notebook that I made. It has all of Puguh's letters and pictures that I have received from him over the last 6 years.

Here is the link to their website if you would like more information on sponsoring a child of your own --> www.compassion.com

And from the bottom of my heart and with all the love I can give, I wish Puguh the Happiest of Birthdays!

Many Blessings,
