We did it!
We sponsored a little girl from Uganda! Her name is Patience Janet Nabumbo. She had been waiting for over six months for a sponsor. I have not done this since I was in high school--4 of us girls sponsored one child together. I think my friend, Sara, might have kept it up when we all went off to college and kind of faded away. I do remember that we sponsored her(?) through World Vision. Ralph and I are sponsoring Patience through Compassion. We have felt compelled lately to care for the poor and especially widows and orphans. We are also starting to work with our neighborhood SVdP chapter to help feed the hungry in our neighborhood. We pray God shows you where He wants you to serve and help. Consider sponsoring a child with Compassion or the organization of your choice. Find your local food pantry, soup kitchen, shelter, etc and jump in and help. We have been blessed with much and are required to give much.
