Did you know that we might get to meet the little boy we've been sponsoring for the past 2 years? His name is Moses and he lives in Pader which is close to the trade school we will be visiting in Uganda.
The Hole in Our Gospel, When Helping Hurts, and Kisses from Katie, I'm convinced more than ever that we can truly change the world one child at a time.
You may think that sponsoring 1 child won't really make much of a difference in eliminating world poverty, but it's about so much more than feeding the hungry. Chances are you and I are wealthier than 90% of the rest of the world. We need a perspective shift just as much as those children need a warm meal, school uniform, and the opportunity to get an education. "To whom much has been given, much will be demanded."
Katie often talks in her book about how caring for the poor can often feel like "emptying the ocean with an eyedropper ... just when you have about half a cup full of water it rains." May we not grow weary in doing good as we seek to be faithful to provide for those in need. Let me know if you need information about sponsoring a child and I can connect you with a trustworthy organization.
Love to you, Homies!
