I received my first letters!

I got my first letter from Nadine and Sara in the mail!!! It was faster than I Thought.  Nadine who is 9 sent a fill in type letter that her father helped her with and Sara sent an actual letter.  Nadine told me she is praying for my health!  How sweet! And Sara told me about her Easter.  I hope to be hearing from them again soon since I Wrote a letter the same time they did. I need to get a binder to keep letters organized.  I love my 2 letters already and can't wait until I get even more.

Fathers day card

We made my husband a fathers day card today...It wasn't even done yet, I went to change Kaden and Declan was running down the stairs screaming DADDY DADDY I MADE YOU A CARD...SEEEE...I couldn't even be upset.  It was so cute!  We will have to make him another one for fathers day but here is the first card we made.  We had a really cute pic of elmo to put on the inside that Declan colored but it never got in there!

Compassion journey

Nadine Jean from Haiti
I am so excited that I get to tell about my compassion journey.  Last month I started sponsoring a little girl from Haiti! She is 8 years old and her name is Nadine Jean!  What a wonderful name that was I thought!  I loved that it rhymed.  What a wonderful way to teach my two boys (ages 2 and 9 months) to love one another and help others in any way we can.  We pray for them every night together and Nadine has quickly became Dean Jean to Declan my 2 year old.  He prays she will get toys. What an innocent prayer coming from a 2 year old!  I also have a correspondent sponsor.  This means I write to her but someone else pays financially.  Her name is Sara and she is from Togo.  She is 13.   Wont you please help me pray for these two youngsters? 
I am so excited that I get to send paper gifts.  I already sent Nadine a lapbook with a photo album of my family, a world map with our countries starred and a picture of Jesus. I sent Sara some dominoes that I laminated and stickers and a puzzles to Nadine.  I am currently working on a crown and bracelet for Nadine and a inspirational picture for Sara. What gifts have you sent your sponser children?

Sara from Togo
