.meet michael.  I know I have talked about him before, but I thought I would formally introduce Michael to you all.  We sponsor this precious little boy through Compassion International.  We love him so much!  We have been sponsoring him for a little over four years and have loved watching him grow through this time.  Michael is from Ghana, Africa (I love Africa).  Michael is one fun little guy who loves to draw us pictures.  He loves football (soccer) and school.  He also loves the Lord with his whole heart.  We can see it in the prayer requests he sends, one time he asked for God to make him wise - such a smart boy, and the prayers he gives.  He is growing so fast and it amazes us each time we get a new picture of him.  .meet michael.

If you don't know anything about Compassion... let me tell you a little.  Compassion is a Christian child advocacy ministry that helps to release children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty so that they may become responsible Christian adults.  They help more then 1 million children in 26 countries.  Compassion is amazing at what they do.  Sponsorship doesn't cost a lot ($38.00 a month) and you get so much in return. Consider sponsoring a child today.

For more information on Compassion International go to their website.  Or their blog.  To sponsor a child go to their sponsor a child page.
