Introducing Emily!

Isn't she PRECIOUS. I just received my Compassion packet today with her picture and information. Emily is 6 years old and lives in Equador with her mother, father, and one other child. Although too young for school just yet, she attends church regularly and loves to ride a bicycle. I can't wait to begin corresponding with her!!! JOY

I've purposely not blogged this week so that the first thing on my blog would be the Compassion Bloggers information. I have a friend who sponsors a child and we decided that when I chose a child to sponsor, I might choose one from the same country and center so we might one day go and visit. I received information about that today!!!! Emily is 5 years old and I am so excited to begin a relationship with her. She is beautiful. I will share more about her as soon as I get all the information.

We are so blessed here in the US and take so much for granted. I hope I can encourage and give Emily hope for a bright, happy future through this sponsorship.

Uganda w/Compassion Intl. Team

People ask me why I have a blog and how I have time to read through them and why in the world I would want to, etc., etc. Well, one of the perks of blogging is finding out about people and things like this~~~~

There are a few blogs I read everyday. Two of the ladies I read everyday were invited to go to Uganda with Compassion International. There is a team going that you can read about here.

The two I read everyday are Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer and Sophie at Boo Mama. I read these blogs regularly.

I ask that you say a prayer for this team this week. They will travel from Sunday, February 10 to February 18th. I do not know any of them personally ~ but they are faithful enough to leave their comfortable homes and families and travel to Uganda. They are my brothers and sisters in Christ ~ and I'm proud of them.

I pray regularly for missionaries ~ and I know there are lots of wonderful people that answer the call of mission work and live/work in dangerous, volatile, war torn, dirty, disease ridden areas ~ they are heroes to me.

The team, all bloggers, will tell their stories as they go. Sharing their experiences with us! I look forward to reading them all.
