Another Birthday

Today is another sweet little girl's birthday. Jula turns 8 today, just like McKenzie. This past December, Betty and I went to a Point of Grace concert in Memphis. Each member of Point of Grace is a supporter and sponsor for Compassion International which is a Christian child advocacy ministry that helps children around the world who are in need and helps to meet their physical needs so they can have an opportunity to meet their spiritual needs as well. POG's presentation at their concert was so moving (yes, Betty cried) and Betty and I both felt led to sponsor a child. We chose Jula because her birthday is so close to McKenzie's and we thought it would be a great way to get McKenzie involved, too. We've written several letters back and forth and have found that Jula and McKenzie share a lot of the same interests. Jula enjoys hide-and-seek, art, and singing. Click on the logo below to learn about Compassion International and see if it would be something you would be interested in doing. It's been a blessing to our family to hear how our small contributions are helping a poor little girl half way around the world.
