Welcome Home Mommy!

This time tomorrow night my Mommy will be home from her exciting trip to Ecuador with Compassion International.

I am so proud of her for going 'cause I know she hated to be away from my big sister and me.......and my DAD!

But when you follow Jesus you sometimes have to do things that are not exactly in your comfort zone!

Such as go down the Amazon in a boat and nearly sweat to death to love on some sweet children who have nothing much other than love from their parents.  Not even the necessities of life!

I am so glad my parents and my Nonny and Poppy have adopted children all over the world to support through Compassion to give them a chance at a better life!  And I don't  mean having the luxuries that we "think" we have to have.  They need food, clothes, clean water and a mattress even to sleep on at night.  And a chance at receiving an education.  Most of all, they receive a chance to hear about Jesus who loves all the little children of the world!

So, Mommy, I can hardly wait to see you!  Here are some pictures Nonny made of me the past few days just to remind you what I look like!  har har.......a little baby humor!

What amazing journeys the Lord sends us on when we are willing to step out and serve him wherever and whenever. Blessings to Kelly for her willingness to serve and go. Blessings to you for giving her the opportunity by taking care of her little one. How wonderful! Thanks for sharing and have a blessed weekend.

I'm too proud of the Ecuador team.The more we have the more we want, the more we have the more we'll leave behind.Greed never dies but what will not die is the selflessness we have shown in the world while we were alive.Nothing could be more humane than adopting helpless and homeless kids,I think instead of feeling sorry for such kids we must pull up our socks and reach out to these needy kids.Loved your post and the pics off course!
