Choosing to love...
This little one in Uganda, a country that had already claimed our hearts when we were there in 2007 waited on and on for someone to choose him. We realized it likely had nothing to do with where he lived or what he looked like or his age but it was his name that hindered. Surely in North America people had many emotions stirred up when thinking of the name Arafat.
"How can we hold that against him?" I asked my husband, and our decision was made. Never a regret, never a look back. We opened our wallets and our hearts.
With apologies for the blurry photo that Rick snapped in poor light I encourage you to dive into Compassion's Pinterest Contest. As part of Compassion's blog month, I encourage you to check into this and get involved even if you've never pinned before.
Halfway into Blog Month and 1,515 children in poverty have been sponsored. Just 1,593 more to go!
Pray. Blog. Sponsor. Help.
