They say the cutest things...

Matia, our youngest little Ugandan boy, always wants me to sit with him on the bus. So the other day, I sat down with him for a while. It was a long drive, so I usually circulate and try to sit with several kids throughout the trip. This was the conversation that took place:

Girls in the back of the bus: "Auntie Tiffany, come sit back here with us now."

Me: "Ok, I'll be back in just a minute..."

Matia: "You don't like me!"

Me: "Of course I do, I love you."

Matia: "But you don't going to sit with me anymore."

Me: "That's because I love all the children and want to spend time with all of them."

Then Matia looks up at me with the cutest little face and says, "Auntie, just love Matia!"


They all have a story...

This year's children came to us all the way from Nepal, Uganda and the Philippines. Most of them come from children's homes, but they all have a story of trials that God has brought them through. Some of them have faced things in their young lives that most of us won't face in a lifetime. We praise the Lord for the ministries that love and care for these kids, and most importantly, are teaching them what it means to live for Christ. These children are the future Christian leaders to some of the most unreached areas of our world. We are so blessed to be able to disciple them and have them here as missionaries to the U.S. this year.

give hope

Everywhere we tour, people have the opportunity to give HOPE by sponsoring a child. Just $30 a month provides a little boy or girl with food, clothing, medicine and an education, but it also gives that child the opportunity to hear about Jesus...the only HOPE for eternity! Maybe this is something you've always wanted to do, but you just wanted to make sure it was a trustworthy organization. Maybe you came to a concert and are still thinking about it. Whatever the case, we hope that you will prayerfully consider sponsoring a child. There's no better time to invest in eternity!
