See, a few of my favorite bloggers are together on a trip in Ecuador for Compassion International. They are bringing God to children and families in a part of the world that does not have the material blessings that we have. Most of these families have a hut, clothing, and whatever food they can afford day by day.
As I have been reading the daily updates, memories of my past Bring-God-To-Those-That-Haven't-Heard trips have been rapidly flashing through my mind. It has been my honor to travel to the Dominican Republic and to inner Mexico several times. On each trip I have been challenged, humbled and changed.
Here are a few pictures from my last trip to Mexico. Many of the children have never seen a picture of themselves so we brought Polaroid cameras along so they could have an instant photo of themselves! Each child was amazed!
And we tied a million balloon animals! Oh the kids loved those balloons. In the background, can you see kids coloring on the red tarp? I was amazed at the fact most children had never colored, had never seen color crayons and they didn't know what to do with them when we handed them out. Once they started coloring, many wouldn't leave the tarp to move to the next activity we had for them.
Would you take time to read the blogs from the Ecuador group. Click HERE to see and read of children waiting for sponsors. After reading this, I bet you will be challenged, humbled and changed.
