He Is Faithful

Thinking back to December 6, 2013 and seeing God's faithfulness and goodness in this last month.

When I got the call that Elizabeth and Samantha's financial sponsor dropped them, I didn't really know what to do.  I love both of these girls dearly and the thought that I might not be able to continue getting to know them was devastating.  And really, how was I going to support them?  

I had one month to find them both a sponsor, or else they'd go into the pool of unsponsored children.

Right away, Elizabeth (who graduates this month) was sponsored for her final month in the Compassion program!

But I still had Samantha that I was looking for a sponsor for.  I posted on OurCompassion.org about her, and there was a tremendous response.  

Yesterday, everything went through and Samantha is back on my account!!  A sweet girl and I are co-sponsoring Samantha, and I will continue to be her correspondent!

I was so overwhelmed to think that I might not be able to continue being a part of Elizabeth and Samantha's lives.  But now, I am just overwhelmed by God's continual faithfulness and provision and love!

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  - Ephesians 2:10
