Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Cristian, 5, is shown at left with his sister and nephew in Romania. His older sister listed the items the family bought with a recent gift: flour, rice, beans, tomato pasta, canned food, honey, peas, potatoes, dairy products, fruits, mushrooms, pasta, halvah, bagels, jacket, blouses, a tracksuit for Cristian and tracksuits for his sisters, washing powder, soap, shampoo and diapers for his sister, toilet paper and many other things.
Dragos, 13, of Romania, sent me this wonderful photo of himself with gifts he purchased using a family gift I sent to him. According to his letter, he bought: “a jacket, a tracksuit, pajamas, oil to cook, rice, beans, sneakers, t-shirts, preserves, pens and many other things.”
I think his smile in this photo is better than all of those items together!
I received this photo from Andrei in Romania after sending his family a financial gift earlier this year. It looks like he got quite a few clothes, and I’m so happy to see that he got something fun – a soccer ball!
“My dear friend,
Thank you so much for the wonderful gift you sent me. Thanks to you, Easter holidays were wonderful. My family and I are grateful for your goodness.
We will pray for you!
God bless you!
Winston is the child I have sponsored through Compassion International the longest – since September 2010.
