Sponsering a child is an awesome way to act on that! We sponsor a little girl in Haiti and it's an awesome exsperiance for our family to connect with someone on the other side of the world! Our kids talk about her all the time. It touches my heart to know that they understand that the world is so much bigger then just us..
Sponsership is around a dollar a day.Thats simple to give up. While me and my hubby were considering sponsership we saw this verse Deuteronomy 24:19 When you are harvesting in your field and you overlook a sheaf, do not go back to get it. Leave it for the alien, the fatherless and the widow, so that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands . We started talking about the money we use for our food, and how we usually go out to eat on Sundays, and usually always spend around 35 dollars for that one meal. We decided if one Sunday each month we don't go out and instead sponsor our little girl. We could in some way live out that verse.

So think about it. I'm sure theres something we all could give up to make a HUGE differance in the life of a child.

When we went to the compassion website we did not know how to begin to pick a child. And we couldn't decide on a boy or girl..so....we cut up a whole bunch of paper wrote Boy on a bunch and girl on a bunch. The kids got to pick it out of the hat and we drew.........
We love our Febiana!!
