Gift Photo – Bolivia

Daniel&FamilyMay2014

Daniel and his family purchased many items with a recent financial gift: sugar, cooking oil, detergent, two bags of noodles, tennis shoes, sweatpants and t-shirts. Daniel writes, “Thanks for the gift that you sent me because it was a blessing for my family and my life…. We send you a picture of us, and it was taken at our house.”

World Vision Gift

A beautiful family photo isn’t the only reward for sending your World Vision sponsor child a family gift, but it is a pretty great one.¬†Of course there’s also the great feeling you get knowing you helped someone out.

But the most important aspect of sending that family gift? It’s this: “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.” – Hebrews 13:16

It pleases God.

In verse after verse in the Bible, God commands us to share our blessings and care for the poor, and in my experience as a sponsor, He always has rewarded me many times over when I have been faithful to Him.

With just $100, Mihai and his family in Romania were able to purchase warm winter clothing and boots for both Mihai and his sister. His mother wrote that this was much appreciated because this winter would be a very cold one for them.

They also purchased school supplies for both children, a large blanket, shoes and toys.

Looks like money well spent to me.
