Background – God Showing Off
In May 2011, I had the opportunity to travel to the Philippines with Compassion International to see the work that they do their for children in need. I traveled with three other amazing blogger and three Compassion staff members.
Being a part of this trip was simply one of the biggest honors I could imagine. My husband and I have been sponsoring children through Compassion for about 10 years now. Sathish, Sophanie, Sayriel, Maricor and Akakor Grace are a part of our family.
And while I would have been ridiculously honored to go on a Compassion trip to any location, to be invited on a trip to the Philippinesâ€¦ is simply God showing off.
My mother, whom I never knew, was from the Philippines. All my life I’d dreamed of going, but never imagined I actually would have the opportunity. Not only did He orchestrate my going, I even had the opportunity to meet my sponsor child and some of my family for the first time!!

Here is a video my brother made for the trip. It’s to one of my favorite songs called A Thousand Things by Christa Wells.
This is a video I made of a visit to the home of a girl named Emily. The song is I Saw What I Saw by Sara Groves.
