Tatiana With Held
Meet Tatiana! Let me tell you about her and the opportunity you have to help me bless her. Tatiana is a new addition to our family through Compassion International. Her favorite activities are art, playing with dolls and listening to music. Her family lives in extreme poverty. The world bank defines extreme poverty to be anyone who lives on less than $1.90 per day. On February 9th 2017, I have been blessed with the opportunity to attend a Compassion Leadership event in El Salvador. Compassion has also allowed me to extend my trip by one day to spend that day with our newly sponsored child. This is where your help is needed. It will cost up to $500 to extend this trip by one day. Final costs have not been set yet but it will not be more than $500.
1. Praying that God will prepare me for this trip! Pray that God will reveal himself and the heart He has for the poor to me so that my heart becomes one with God's heart so that I can later share it with others.
2. Helping me pay for this extended stay to bless Tatiana and her family and possibly other families that live in unimaginable poverty.
The Goal is $500. If that goal is exceeded, I will use that money to purchase items like pencils, crayons, coloring books, notebook paper, sheets, towels, and groceries for the families of the project.
May God Bless you as you partner with me in caring for the least of these. As a gift to you, I will post pictures of Tatiana and the gifts I am able to purchase because of your generosity. Thank you for joining me in blessing Tatiana and her family.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. — James 1:27
An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him. Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest.”
