Three thousand one hundred-eight.

1 Comment

Compassion blog month. September one to September thirty. The goal? Three thousand one hundred-eight children sponsored in thirty days. Now this is exciting!

What happens when a child is sponsored through Compassion? That life is changed forever! The cycle of poverty broken. Hope and a new beginning become a reality in a world where 22,000 children die of starvation every. Single. Day.

These children are waiting. Waiting to be rescued. Waiting for hope. Waiting for a new beginning. Would you consider clicking over and praying for them?

I am watching and waiting to see God move, won’t you join in me in prayer for these children? Pray that God will open the heart of someone to bring them joy? Pray for well being and for them to come to know God? Pray for protection from disease, hunger, abuse, trafficking? Pray for a life to be changed forever? Pray for God to break your heart for what breaks His?

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Matthew 25:40 NIV

Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
Luke 18:16 NIV

A stay at home mom, married to my best friend, who loves like Jesus. Together we have four beautiful daughters. One biological, one adopted and two by way of marriage. Our 12 year old daughter was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome when she was 6 years old and our youngest was diagnosed with autism at 3 years old. I have dealt with chronic illness most of my life and at times has been debilitating. It is through this illness and the special needs of our children that drew us closer to God. Beyond Borders is the place where I write out my story of living beyond my borders. A place to share of God’s love and grace, His mercy and sovereignty, and what that looks like in my own little world of chronic illness and autism. A place where courage and faith intersect and He moves me to action. My hope in writing is that you find something that inspires you. Encourages you. Makes you smile.
