I really stink at games of chance, including blackjack. But the opportunity to use the metaphor comes along only once.
Each of the children we feature here have a past that’s been a series of busted hands until they became part of Healing Haiti and Grace Village. Since then the odds have changed and a lot of them have doubled down on their futures. I see winners all around when you help these children with your sponsorship.
This week’s child is: Lovena.
I’d love to tell you about Lovena‘s interests and hopes for the future. But her biography is missing from the site and I want to focus on what she means to me, instead. Each of the children at Grace Village treated me with kindness and joy. A nicer bunch you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere on the planet. Lovena has been at Grace Village for a few years and while I don’t have a specific memory of her to share, I can tell you that she’s well cared for and loved by the staff. This is your chance to expand that circle of love and bring her into your heart with your gift of sponsorship.
Birthdate: July 13, 1999
Place of Birth: Port au Prince, Haiti
It is my hope that one of you will find your heart touched by this child and take up a bit of Christ’s work by sponsoring them for an extended period. My wife and I are sponsoring a pair of sisters and we took on the commitment based on having to only gave up a fast-food dinner each day to change the life of a child. God came through with a very lucrative bit of voice over work for me that covered the bill that same day, but it really is as easy as skipping a value meal. Healing Haiti will do the right things for these children and I have full confidence in their work. I am not affiliated with them, they don’t endorse this blog, nothing like that at all. I just love kids (can’t be Santa and not love children) and know that Grace Village is the difference between life and death for many of these children. Please open your heart and prayerfully reflect on the opportunity God’s giving us to sponsor these children. Some of them have come out of slavery and have some of the toughest lives you could imagine prior to Grace Village.
Just click the link and it will take you directly to the page where you can sponsor this week’s child. And if God is particularly good and that child is sponsored when you get there, please grab another smiling face and change their life instead. My goal is to put Sponsorship Sunday out of business as quickly as possible and take that day off each week. Thank you. God bless you for your generosity.
