Sponsoring Children in Kenya
Beautiful blessed Fall! This is a picture of our family in Indiana with our 2 “adopted” (sponsored) Kenyan children, Cynthia and Consolata. We began sponsoring them in early 2009 through CMF International (Christian Mission Fellowship International).
Our church, Trader’s Point Christian Church, partners with other churches and the CMF giving food, shelter, education, and God’s teaching to the Bondini slum in Nairobi, Kenya. We sponsor them monthly financially and pray for them continually (and may get to meet them someday on a mission trip to Kenya).
With Christmas quickly approaching, please plan and teach your children to give as Christ teaches us to give – consider sponsoring one of God’s so needy and special children, along with gifting your time and talents to your church and local helping organizations (like Wheeler Mission, Salvation Army, Lebanon’s Caring Center, and so many more).
My nine year old, Annika, started thinking about her Christmas list in the car today on the way home from her soccer game. I discussed with her that we first need to think and plan about how we will serve and give back as our Christmas gift!
