Little ‘Passion Child

A few days ago, Luna made a request.  “Mama, can you help me write to my ‘passion child?”

So we grabbed the picture of our little peanut, Madina from Uganda.  I showed Luna how we pray for our children before we write and then I used a marker to write down what Luna told me she wanted to say. Luna diligently traced every word and signed her name at the bottom. She also drew a picture of the two of them, but took artistic liberty to add pigtails to Madina’s bald little head.

As we finished up and slipped the papers into an envelope, Luna threw her arms around me and hugged me.  “I love Madina. She’s so cute!” she said with a huge smile. She skipped off and I felt so blessed to have children who have inherited my passion for these ‘passion children.

Love it!

My kids (almost 5 & 2.5) always ask to pray for their sponsor brothers and sisters. Big sister knows all their names and little brother knows about 3 of them. We have a film-strip frame that holds all of them in our kitchen. What a blessing children's faith can be!

I love it when our kids write to our Compassion kids too! I just came back from a quick business trip to PEI, and when I got home, there was a drawing/letter on the table from Jillian for Ato Sam in Ghana. She had taken his binder out and had a look through all his letters to find out his fav things, and she drew them all for him, and drew her fav things too! It was the sweetest thing...

Last week, hubby wrote to Ato Sam in Ghana -- that completely melted my heart into a puddle. That has to be one of my top five love languages, LOL!

Hi Michelle, I'm sure little Madina is going to love your sweet Luna's hearfelt letter to her. How adorable !! That is so wonderful that the Lord gave your little girls hearts (just like their mama has) for the poor. The picture of Luna writing her 'passion child is precious.
