Day 3: World View

Today {Day 3: World View} we remember our beautiful girl Rakhelda we spounsor through World Vision. Three years ago we made in ornament with her picture on it and we hang it up on the tree and say a special prayer of bless on her and her family. It is also her birthday next month and today helps remind us to put her gift in the mail. We’ve been sponsoring Rakhelda since she was 5 or 6 (I was in college @ the time) and now she is turning 15 years old!!! She is a beautiful young lady now with dreams of becoming a teacher. She works so hard @ school and has a shinning smile that will light up your day.

 

We try to talk with the boys about her as much as we can. We have a flag with a push-pin to mark where Rakhelda lives on the map in the boys room. I hope to learn and teach the boy more about her and her culture over this next year.

Dear Rakhelda-

you are a beautiful addition to our family! We love to look at your picture and see how much you have grown and changed over the years. We are so very proud of you. We pray that God will pour down blessings on you and your family over this next year. We pray that you will hear and know the voice of God in your life and you will follow after it with all you heart soul and mind. We love you so much!

Love: Scott, Shannon, JC & Micah

Do you have a sponsored child? Do you have any special traditions you do with your kids to help them connect more with him/her?

“Preach the gospel at all times. Use words if necessary.” – St. Francis

Make an ornament with a picture of a child that you sponser – involve the members of your family (or roommates). Pray throughout the day for him/her as well his/her family and village. If you can, buy a special gift through the sponsor organization for his/her family or village. If you don’t sponsor a child choose a country to focus on, or start sponsoring a child today.

World Vision

Compassion

“The world of the generous gets larger and larger;
the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller.
The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed;
those who help others are helped.” Proverbs 11:24-25

“Love put into action is a compelling and attractive worldview”. – Rich Sterns

Have you ever experienced a random gift that was just what you needed at the moment?

I’m leaving on a jet plane…for 25 hours!

This summer I have the AMAZING opportunity to do a Medical Mission to Nkhoma, Malawi. And you heard me right…it is about 25 hour and multiple plane trip to this village in Malawi, Africa.

Yet, I can’t be more excited about this trip  with Y-Malawi and my church Newsong – I get to actually met, physically touch and help the kids that many of my friends sponsor through World Vision. I get to see where the water well we are trying to build through Kuvina::an art auction will be built. And I get to use my nursing skills to help people on the other side of the globe, which has been my passion and inspiration for going into nursing.  I talk a little more about how, what and why in my support letter.
