>Thankful

>I am exceedingly thankful today. Even though my husband and I are sniffling, sneezing, feverish and Nyquiled up, there is so much to be thankful for! The thing we are most thankful for today is our Compassion International child Charles Okwalinga. We got a letter from him today and he told us that he recently came down with malaria. At first we were extremely upset to hear that. As we read on he told us that because of his participation in the Compassion program he was able to get medicine that made him well. This is medicine that he most likely wouldn’t have been able to get since his family only makes an average of 6 dollars (US) a month. He told us that he is very thankful to the Lord that he is healed and thankful to us for sponsoring him and allowing him to get the medical treatment that he needs. So as we sit here sick but surrounded by all the comforts that living in the United States brings us (blankets, a television, medicine, chicken noodle soup, etc.) I find myself thankful for what we have and thankful for what we are able to give to others! 

We have a 4 and a half year old girl named Sophia that we are trying to find a sponsor for! She lives in Kenya and has been waiting over 13 months for a sponsor, if you are interested please email me at corsair4christ@yahoo.com! Change the life of a child, but be prepared to be changed yourself!

***Update 12/20/10: Sophia found a sponsor! A couple at our church agreed to sponsor her on 12/19/10. ***
