Our New Little Boy via Compassion

This is Estiven, our newly adopted 5 year old boy, from Compassion International.
He lives with his grandmother in Nicaragua. Isn't he just the sweetest little boy?

We just got our packet today with all his information. I can't wait to get a letter off
to him telling him how we are so looking forward to be a small part of his life by meeting
some of his needs as he grows up.

I thank God for the privilege to support this young man so he may grow up healthy
and learn the good news of Jesus.

I also hope to meet him if possible in September when I go on my second trip to
Nicaragua. Wouldn't that be wonderful?

He is adorable--a very handsome boy. You will be such a blessing to him--your act of kindness changed his life forever! And how wonderful that the Lord will now use you to ensure that he hears the gospel!
