Links I Love: 3 Hanky Edition

Compassion Bloggers: Guatemala 2010I honestly believe there aren’t any more important posts you’ll read this week than these. May they change our lives so that we can change others’ lives.

Lame sponsors of the world unite! – If you can write, you can make a radical difference in a child’s life. This is possibly the most powerful post I’ve read from a Compassion trip blogger. Well done Lisa-Jo.

the one question you’ve got to look in the mirror & really ask – I read and forget 99% of the blog posts I read. This one? I pray that it always remains a part of who I am. Who I become.

My Darling Jenser – It wrecked me that Lindsey’s little boy is the same age as my little boy. And yet…. Their lives are so different.

how to make your life an endless celebration – I’d say I love to read Ann Voskamp’s words because she’s a brilliant writer, but that’s not true. Her posts are profound because she’s a brilliant listener. She doesn’t listen to everyone who yells in the blogosphere. She listens to Him. And writes. The heart of God on paper…pixels.

Joy – Amanda from Baby Bangs (also Beth Moore’s daughter) shares the Joy of meeting her Guatemalan family.

Two Enemies Of Children – if you feel moved by the two posts above, then please read this one and pray these two requests for the children of Guatemala.

This Is A MUST Watch Video

If you’re not sure you can make a difference in the world, watch this video. Have your tissues handy. Consider yourself warned. (If you’re in a hurry, the most powerful part starts at about 6:00.)

    We have an Indonesian “son”, Ucok, through Compassion. He’s been a part of our lives for the last 5 years and we have immensely enjoyed watching him grow and mature in Christ from afar. At first his mother would write us to let us know how he was doing and now he writes his own letters which are incredible. We love what Compassion ministries does and it is an absolute joy to partner with them! I highly recommend this to everyone : )

  • Thank you for this. Thank you for these beautiful links and words and support. They mean the world to us and more because they shine a light on a thousand little faces we have seen this week.
