we can all be world changers

It is often said that when you change just one person’s life you have changed the world. Jesus talks about when you help someone, you are truly helping him. I included a passage from Matthew 25 at the end of this post and really describes small acts of kindness with great meaning.

This is something I believe, it is something I want to always live my life by, or try my best too. The mindset of helping others we are helping Christ, who gave us the most perfect example of loving others, and helping them changing the world one person at a time.

Today we uploaded our new sponsorship profiles for the newest and wonderful additions to our family. It is really amazing that this program gives people the chance to make an impact in someones life. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world you have the chance to become a world changer. And that is pretty exciting.

What is so special is being on the other side and seeing their faces light up when they hear they received a sponsor. They are so quick to ask where they are from, what their names are. The kids pray for their sponsors every night, some have gotten to face-time with them and receive letters and photos. Those photos which now hang above their bed. The kids talk about their sponsors and tell their friends they have friends in America, and other parts of the world that love them, and believe in their dreams.

And then I look at these photos, and see future world changers, because people like you who believe in them and their dreams, and know that ALL KIDS deserve to belong in a family and deserve the same rights we have.

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. “- John 15:12

“I think one of the best words in the English language is ‘compassion.’ I think it holds everything. It holds love, it holds care… and if everybody just did something. We all make a difference.” – Michael Crawford

Matthew 25:35-40
35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
