It's A Girl!


For several years my husband and I have sponsored a little boy through World Vision. His name is Pellumb. He lives in Albania with his father, mother and older brother. It has blessed us a million times over to be a part of his life.

The other day my husband said he thought we should sponsor another child. I am so excited to introduce you to her. Her name is Nomhle. She is almost four years old. She lives in South Africa with her mother, brother and two sisters. "Her mother struggles to provide for the family." says the accompanying letter.

Nomhle lives in a community severely affected by the HIV AIDS crisis. When I made the call to World Vision to sponsor another child, the sweet lady's closing comment to me was, "Nomhle is a Hope-child".

There it is again - my word for this year "HOPE". How I smiled when I heard it. I look at that sweet little face and I am so moved. I wish I could gather her in a big hug.

Thank You Father for bringing this sweet little one into our lives.

Blessings,

What a blessing. So neat that she is a 'Hope Child'. I read about your trip to the Grand Canyon. We were in our early twenties with two little ones with us and we were just passing through. I would like to see it with more mature eyes. Keep researching. That helps us to find little places we would not have known about when we are on camping trips. Check some travel books out from the library. The good old fashion way to research. (o:

what a joy sponsoring a child is. To give HOPE to what otherwise looks hopeless

That's awesome Linda, knowing you're actually helping a little one on the other side of the world. We use to sponsor a child too and we really should get back into it, thanks for the reminder :-)

She is adorable. We have two children too. A boy from Chile and a girl from Kenya.

We like Compassion International... We got a calendar from them for this year, and the quote on this month's page is by Ghandi. It says: There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.

Hi Linda! How wonderful that you are doing this. It is so thrilling, isn't it, to know that we each can help in our own small way. Thank you for sharing this beautiful little girl with us.

What a sweetheart! We sponsor a Hope-child from Africa too.. a girl named Ntsoaki. You ARE a blessing to Nomhle! It's such a wonderful wonderful thing. I'm so glad you shared this with us.
