World Vision Update

Well, the girls have collected all their bake sale money for World Vision and counted it forty seven times.

They raise $80.00 (that is a lot of cookies and water), and after much shopping have decided on five ducks and four chickens.  They are so excited to give this gift, to people they don't even know.  People they will never even see a reaction from or get a thank you.  I want to give that freely, without expectation.  I know I fall so short of this and am humbled by the lesson God is teaching me though my children.  The heart of a child what an amazing thing.  I hope the family that receives these animals know how much they are loved by two little girls and by their Heavenly Father.

This is a follow up to this World Vision post

Sit Relax and Read

This is so incredibly sweet! The school I used to teach in did this and it was so fun choosing the gifts to give. God bless you and your sweet girls! Merry Christmas!

that's incredible that at their age they see a need and are eager to be used to minister!

how awesome.... We have sponsored a child for several years... and I write and send small packages to our child and my grandson's sponsored child.... our church does a reverse gift card where you buy it and give it to someone and all the $ is sent to World Vision to Katito Kenya for clean water wells.... God bless your family!
