I’m a bit overwhelmed by my desire to “Go” to one of the many mission fields my church and community are visiting this year. I want to meet the children whom Earl and I sponsor.
Today I saw several posts on Facebook from missionary friends with Beyond Uganda. My heart grew heavy. Isent a message through Facebook to a missionary friend there to tell Elizabeth, our sponsor child, I love her.
Shortly after Earl and I signed up to sponsor Elizabeth, we learned she had malaria. There was no money to pay for the medicine needed to treat her. What would we do if she was a daughter raised in our home?
Earl and I provided for Elizabeth.
Uganda is far away from my home and my visiting there isn’t practical. My heart breaks for the children around the world who need food, water, clothing, love and Jesus.
No, I can’t go but I can send my love. So can you. Your gifts, physical, monetary, and spiritual, are greatly needed around the world. .
Sponsoring opportunities abound locally and through many large mission programs. Won’t you consider loving a child by providing his or her daily needs. Will you show them Jesus by reaching out and teaching them about His love.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19 NIV).
