So after praying about it for a while, a week ago I call Compassion and got on the waiting list for another correspondent child. The next day she was there on my account. . .
Aster Gelgelo Gobena
Aster is from Ethiopia! She is going to be 9 yrs old on Sep. 20. She lives with both her parents and one sibling!!! She loves to play house, group games and jump robe. She helps out her family by running errands, cleaning, and helping with child care. Aster's father works as a laborer at a construction site and her mother sometimes sells at the market.
Wait. . .that is not all. I called Compassion today and asked a few questions about Aster. She has been in the program since August 2007 and has had two sponsors, but has never received a letter. Isn't that heartbreaking!?! I will send her her first letter today. I know God has placed this beautiful girl in my life to show her His love. She is SO precious to Him. I am so excited to get to know her!! She is already so precious to me!
There are so many more children just like Aster who receive little or no letters at all. They wait for them, just like Aster but they have never come. I pray you will be moved to sponsor a child today and show them the love of Christ. If you sponsor and don't write it is not to late to start or pick up the pace. You will never regret it!
All for Him,
