Yesterday at church we saw a video on Compassion International. In their own words, "Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults." Next Sunday is Compassion Sunday at church and I have really felt challenged to step up and do more for those in need. I have been blessed immensely and feel God challenging me to give back some of what I have been given. Therefore, I have decided to sponsor a child through Compassion. This is going to take a great deal of faith on my part since I will be quitting my job in August to go to nursing school full time. We will be living on one salary and paying for school. I know that if this is what God requires of me, he will come through and make it happen. I will still be doing embroidery and handmade baby items, which I sell pretty frequently, but I just have to have faith that God will bring enough business my way so that I will be able to still help pay the bills and do this for Him.
That said, profits from my Etsy store from here on out will go toward my sponsorship of a Compassion International child. Please say a prayer for both my faith and for this child, whoever he/she may be.
