This title says it all; it’s about providing baby goats to children in need. I know how important they can be for the families of our children. When I sponsored a boy in Haiti, every time I sent extra money for Christmas or birthdays he would buy a goat. When he graduated and I asked if he had a younger brother I could sponsor, Compassion sent me a new child packet for the brother and it said he was responsible for the family’s “herd of goats!” I just had to giggle. How wonderful!
In addition to hurricanes and fires this has been a summer of huge devastation in many third world countries. Please continue praying for India, Nepal and Pakistan. This affects more than 16 million children. Imagine that! They really need our prayers and support. I’ve been especially concerned for two boys I’ve previously corresponded with in India through Compassion’s ministry–Joseph and Subhah. I’ve been equally concerned for Muuo, the young man I met in Kenya. I’ve recently heard that his area has been facing a drought and has tried to plant three times, only to fail each time.
