Thankful

Like just about everyone, my mind is wandering today towards things I am thankful for.  The list goes on and on.  Family. Provision. The freedom to follow our Faith. I could probably sit here for hours, without coming to the end of my Thankful List.

This morning, tears came to my eyes when I received the news of another child sponsored.

When JD went to visit our Precious in Ghana, she was able to visit the Child Development Center that Precious attends.  While I have had nothing but super things to say about project GH220, until JD shared the information, I didn’t know that they were officially awarded with the recognition of being the best project in Ghana.

It comes as no surprise, though. They are so good about sending letters to sponsors and even photos with every financial gift that is given to the children.

I have come to love GH220 and have taken the project under my wing, so to speak. I smiled when I read JD’s account of her visit there.

“This Compassion project is part of the Wesleyan Methodist church in this community, and currently serves more than 200 children, 8 of which are registered but still waiting for sponsors.  I told them Michelle would work on that :o)”

Ahhh, my sister knows me well, doesn’t she?

I contacted Compassion and they’ve looked for the remaining GH220 children that are waiting for sponsors.  After some checking, I was sent the packets for two children.

Before even posting them here on the blog, little Francisca was chosen by a friend.

I imagine that her smile will grow even bigger when she receives the news that a wonderful family has stepped up to sponsor her!

That leaves a handsome young man named Foster.

Foster is also nine years old.  He lives with his parents and 3 siblings. He enjoys soccer and reading and is considered to be average in school.

I’d love to find a sponsor for him.  Is he perhaps pulling at your heart?  Would you like any more information about him? If so, please let me know through a comment or by using the Contact Form on the right hand side of the page.

I am thankful for the family that decided to sponsor Francisca!  What a wonderful way to show gratitude for the blessings God has given us!

I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving!
