I’m joining the Gypsy Mama and her Five Minute Fridays. Rules are: for only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. Won’t you join us?
Earlier this week I received an email from Compassion. Thankfully it was not relating to my sponsored children (2 of which live in flood declared disaster areas of Equador), but instead, was a response to my advocate application that I had turned in last Fall.
It had been so long since I sent it that I had actually
come to the conclusion that it just wasn’t mean to be forgotten about it. But, nope, they wanted to set up a phone interview with me and have me watch/review some training webcasts.
No problem-o, Bob. I quickly scheduled my interview (for this afternoon) and set out to watch the videos.
And amid all of that, I realized that Compassion Bloggers would be making a trip to Tanzania soon, Compassion Sunday events are being held all over North America, and even something as small as this blog is impacting sponsors and potential sponsors around the world.
You. Me. Our neighbors, our families – all connected and making a difference in this world – together.
Some of us will make a difference locally – helping a student struggling with school work, stocking a community food pantry, shopping a locally owned businesses, simply sharing a smile
Some of us will make a difference regionally – volunteering in afterschool programs, leading church groups/classes, hosting in(RL) link-ups, supporting farmer’s markets, offering to carpool when someone needs transportation
Some of us will make a difference globally – growing our own food, supporting missionaries, participating in Operation Christmas Child.
