Six Word Saturday

Whoo--hooo.  It is Saturday!

I am linking up with 6WS at Cate's place...Show My Face.

It's a party, come on over.  Describe what is going on in your life in 6 words.

We sponsored a child, Millicent Mwihaki!

She is from Kenya.  She is 9 years old and her and I share the same birthday, May 12th so I took that as a *sign* that she was the ONE.  I can't wait to get to know this wonderful little girl and help her become the woman that she is suppose to be.  I hope us sponsoring her makes a huge impact in her life.  I looked up the meaning of her name and it means, Strong.  I am excited to share that with her along with some pictures of her new faraway family.  I will have to show you a picture of her once I can scan the one I have. 

We have wanted to sponsor some children from Compassion International for awhile now and now we have.  I am so excited!

My good friend, Jill who blogs over at Compassion Family is a HUGE advocate for Compassion International.  Her and her family are so inspiring.  Her husband is in Nicaragua today actually to meet one of the girls they have sponsored for 9 years!  That would be so awesome.  I can't wait to hear about his trip.  And they sponsor 19 kids!  AHHH-MAZING, they are.  Love that girl!

Interested in learning more about Compassion and all that they do for the sufferering and impoverished?  Please don't hesitate.

Check out their site. It has all the information you need to get started down the road of sponsorship.  And if you go to Jill's blog she has compiled a fairly large list of other Compassion sponsors who blog about their Compassion children so you can get a taste of how rewarding it is to be a sponsor.

Have an awesome Saturday!

Anything fun on the agenda for today?


  1. Congratulations! That's so admirable.

  2. That's so sweet. I hate that our budget isn't large enough to do this.

  3. Admirable indeed. Compassion translated into action is becoming increasingly rare these days.

  4. I love that you share - your heart, your time, your love, your compassion, your thoughts.

    You're an inspiration for all of us.


I *heart* comments!
