Last night, Jay and I had a wonderful time working the Compassion International table at the Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith concert. We have such a wonderful group of Compassion Advocates and working events with them is always such a joy. I lamed out and didn’t take any pictures of the event, but I do have a photo to share.
This is Tibikoma from Uganda. From the minute i saw her photo, this little sweetie stole my heart. All evening, I showed her child packet to whoever I could. While many people fawned over her, by the end of the night, she still wasn’t sponsored. My husband suggested that we “bring her home” and after thinking for a few minutes, I stuck her packet in my purse.
Initially, we had agreed to sponsor her, but as we drove home and as I lay in bed last night, I had this overwhelming feeling that Tibikoma was not to be ours. You see, I have had another girl in Ghana on my prayer list. I feel that, if we are to bring our tenth Compassion International child into our family, that Betty would be the girl for us.
So, I am going to make a plea to my readers. Take a look at this spunky girl in the sunny yellow dress and let me know if you would be willing to add her to your family.
Some details about Tibikoma: Her birthday is May 17th, 2005. She is listed as living with just her mother. Her duties include carrying water, buying or selling in the market and cleaning. There are two children in the family. Tibikoma enjoys singing, playing with dolls and jumping rope. Being from Uganda, her letters would most likely come in English.
If you would be willing to take Tibikoma into your family, please contact me and I will get you the info that you need to sponsor her online. I would mail her packet to you this week and could also add in a little something to send her as well.
(( Edited to share just how GOOD our God is! Within twenty minutes of publishing this blog post, I was contacted by a friend who has agreed to sponsor Tibikoma!! Praise the Lord!! Let us rejoice! ))
If you aren’t able to sponsor her, would you join me in prayer for her to find a sponsor quickly? I would truly appreciate it.
