Precious Children!

Here is a link to a video that helps to describe life for some in Ethiopia! What a contrast to our life! At the grocery store this morning I had my choice of any type of food that I wanted. I was annoyed that they didn't have the type of peaches that our family prefers! It is so sad to see these but good for me to be aware. I have been given so much! How am I using the blessing that we have?

Wow! That is so sad and brings tears...I can't even imagine that! I need to remember that the next time I'm complaining.

This is very troubling. How much help is the USA sending? Thanks for the video link.

Wow- I had to lock the door at work as I was overcome with tears! May God bless you for the efforts you are making to change even one who could be in this situation. My arms are aching to hold him!

Thanks for sharing this. I need to see this but I don't want to see this. May God raise up His church to be mobilized to do something!
