Judah's story

When we think about children in poverty,  I think its easier to distance ourselves.  We imagine that other cultures are so different from our own, that we somehow believe their sorrow is different too.  But the thing is, parents love their children. Whether their homes are like ours or not, their love for their children is.  They love their kiddos just like we love our kiddos.  Poverty doesn't change that.  It just complicates it.  Watch this brief video about Judah and listen to his mother's realization:

 There are so many things that our children have access to, simply because of where they were born.  And there are so many children that do not have access for the same reason -- where they were born.  In our global society, we can change that.  I encourage you to consider sponsoring a child through Compassion International.  You'll be richly blessed, and at the same time, you'll be a part of blessing another family in ways we can't quite measure.  You might just provide another mom the opportunity to tell a story like Judah's about her own son.  Click here for more information.
