I’m a huge supporter of Compassion International in case you can’t tell from my blog. And a few days ago, I decided to add one more to my little “family”. For a single girl with no one depending on me, it’s strangely scary to commit to another human being, no matter how small the capacity. Silly I know, but what if I lose my job? What if I go on the field myself? I support two little boys through Compassion already and love my letters to “Mom E” or even the letters from the boy’s  mothers themselves who have told me how excited their kids are to have a sponsor and how much joy it brings to their heart to see their little ones so happy. People say to be careful how much I commit to because I never know when I may need it…but really it’s only $38 a month. If I gave up drinking sweet tea with lunch and a couple of Starbucks stops, I’d have that easily. So I started thinking…can I drink water (which is better for me anyway!) to give a child education, food, clothing and a chance to meet Jesus. Hmm. Well, if you put it that way how could I not? As long as God continues to provide for me, I will provide for them. So now I have Princess…a little girl in Ghana. Considering my newest nickname, I’m pretty sure we’re a perfect match.
