Stop waiting for the "right" time ...

At "Trees of Glory" care-point in Ethiopia, there are 84 children hoping for a sponsor family!

They really can't quite believe that someone could possibly love them enough, and value them enough, to come alongside them.  To love them, pray for them, provide for them ... and give them opportunities they have only dreamed about. 

It's almost too much to hope for or even believe. Could it be true?

If you have been thinking about sponsorship, waiting for the "right"time to get involved. Perhaps NOW is the right time. After all, will there ever really be a better time?

For these kids ... your decision to sponsor now (not later) can change the course, the very direction, of their lives.

Please contact me at kjwistrom@yahoo.com - you can choose to sponsor one of the kids shown below - or let me know if you have a specific age and gender, one child or a sibling group, that is weighing heavy on your heart.

The "older" kids pictured below weigh heavy on my heart.  These are the kids that are well aware of how tough and hopeless life is for them.  Sadness and loneliness have already settled deeply into their hearts.  These are the kids that can't believe someone from the other side of the world, could possibly have any interest in them.  These are the kids that are afraid to hope.  Afraid to hope because it hurts so much to be let down. 

I think these are the kids that appreciate their sponsor family the most!  In November when I am in Ehtiopia, these are the kids that I will hug a little longer, and cup their face in my hands to really look deeply into their eyes - and tell them how much they are loved and prayed for by their sponsor family!
