"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

A little shocked

I logged into my Compassion International account today to send emails to my 4 Compassion kids. What a shock to see a new face! And an even bigger shock to see that Ashenafi was gone. Nanese's photo was no longer on her account. I knew that she had aged out. I was expecting that and this is the first sign that she has left although her information is still there. I'm going to attempt to send one last letter to her. I was not expecting to lose contact with Ashenafi. He graduated college and he's an accountant! I hope that the Lord blesses him and he finds a good job & can overcome poverty. He's healthy & attending church & choir. I'm happy that he's doing well and I'm very proud of him. I wish I could have said goodbye.

  1. Wow, I have yet to lose (or have graduate) any of my kids, but I know it is coming soon with my oldest. I am already so sad just knowing its coming. I am sure that is so hard to lose 2 so close together! At least we know we serve a faithful God who loves these children even more than we do.
