I Have a Dream

I want to go to Ecuador to meet my Compassion child and her family.

I recently heard a story about a woman who sponsored several children in one family and was able to go meet them. I saw video footage of the meeting, and it was just beautiful.
Of course, seeing that video inspired me to want to meet my child. (I've seen pictures. She is ADORABLE.) And I started day-dreaming about it. Honestly, I enjoy writing to Noemi, and it is a delight to pray for her. But to meet her face-to-face and to be able to pick her up and hug her would be a dream come true.

Then I received a letter from Noemi's mother (She doesn't know how to write yet!) and at the end of it she asked, "Will you ever come to Ecuador?"

In my reply I said I would come if God makes the way. I know He can do it. And I'm praying He will!

Remember, I have a fun give-away tomorrow. Be sure to visit!

I want to go to Tanzania to meet my two 'daughters'. I purposely chose both to be from the same country in hope that I could go and meet them both on the same trip one day. One day.....

I'm also praying that the Lord paves a way for you to meet Noemi.

The day we traveled to China to meet our daughter face to face, after only seeing a photo, was an indescribable, miraculous experience! I realize Noemi will not be going home with you, but the experience of meeting her in person, will be beyond joyful for you I am sure!
