Matthew 18:2-5 – He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.So I am going to solicit for help. Not for me.
Let me tell you a short story (and again, I will remain anonymous for as long as possible), although this story is super legit…
When I was a kid, around late 80s to early 90s, my church participated to a program where they had some families sponsor children whom they feel to be in actual need of sponsorship.
I was never part of that program, although we were not exactly rich. I doubt if we’re even in the middle class, but both my parents have steady jobs and it does not qualify. In short, we were not poor enough. At that time, all I felt was envy (those stickers, bookmarks! I did not even think of the money to tell you the truth). Being still so young, I did not even realize that not qualifying was actually a good thing.
My Sunday School mates though were all sponsored. They get stickers, stationery, photos, lil trinkets, the works! Anything that excites a little child. It was basically what I wanted at that time because I was so young. But to have someone care for you apart from your family, it’s something special and new.
So I said, why not sponsor a child?! So I did. The only thing is that the payment method is via credit card. As you know (if you follow my blog), I am an expatriate in Saudi Arabia, so my card is KSA based. I did not know that donations done to external (non-KSA based) charity corporations cannot be done via KSA based banks. So yes, I am still waiting for their reply as to whether they have any other means of standing payment.
I do not have any purpose in discussing about this other than to encourage you to do the same, perhaps your process can be an easier one being that you could be in America or Europe, Southeast Asia or perhaps in the Philippines!
Let us help the indigenous kids! I am heartbroken seeing how they’ve been forced to mature so fast because of poverty. They deserve to be kids with hobbies for children, with errands for children!
Let’s help others give JOY to these kids! If your heart urges you to donate, please visit their page (click ME).
