I am only one, but I am one.
One might say...
'in a world of 143 million orphans there is no way I can make a difference'.
Tell that to Layla
who just came home in August from Ethiopia and into her loving family.
She is no longer a number... a statistic... or a child forgotten in a orphanage.
She is now a beloved daughter being raised in a loving Christian family.
She has been released from certain death by a loving Heavenly Father who called HIS children to adopt and THEY LISTENED.
Tell that to our sponsor daughter:
Viola at Bugaboo Village, Uganda where just a month ago she was found in the home of her grandmother being starved to death because she was the oldest and grandma had to CHOOSE who to feed and who to let perish! Our dear missionary friend went to her home and begged to help her. Viola, and her younger sister, Rittah now live with them. www.compassinmyheart.blogspot.com (A year of care including school, school uniform, vaccinations, books/school supplies, 1 meal a day, and the knowledge of Jesus Christ is $100.00 a YEAR! Viola's sponsorship was Tim's Christmas gift to me last year and to think in that year she could have died, but she didn't... she LIVES!)
Tell that to the mother in labor in Ethiopia where 4 in 10 woman die in child birth because there is only 1 doctor for every 35,000 people. Most people NEVER see a doctor in their life-time. Tell the same woman who received a $10 birthing kit, that saved her and her baby from death, that one person can't make a difference!
She will tell you other-wise.
Go to: www.bemm.org to learn how you can donate a $10 birthing kit.
These individuals are living proof that ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Americans are some of the most blessed and powerful people in the world.
We are over-flowing with gifts, but are we sharing them?
The Bible teaches:
"Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality, as it is written: 'He who gathers much did not have too much, and he who gathered little did not have too little' 2 Corinthians 8:13-15
