His Heart for Haiti

Giving Hope Through Child Sponsorship

An Undeserved Gift

2 Comments

Recently I was caught by these words from one of our regular visitors:

“Having a sponsor for my education is like having grace, it is an undeserved gift.”
Evans, 13th year student

Compare this earthly gift of a Christian education to the gift of salvation from God…an offer to be saved eternally by grace through faith…offered freely to all:

“For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.”
Ephesians 2:8

Thanks for the difference many of you are making one child at a time! We can never underestimate the power of encouragement and the power of love. This young man that I quoted comes by often to talk and has shared that he hopes to also sponsor one or two children when he finishes college and gets a job. He is well aware that not everyone has been given the gift of education that he has been given. Could a life changing earthly gift help open eyes to the greatest gift ever offered? Most definitely! You can tell your sponsored child about Jesus. Because you have demonstrated that you love him/her you now have an open door to share the greatest gift!

Here are some recent favorite photos:

This photo speaks to me of our children's willingness to serve in Haiti with us. Here Grace is following us into a 2-hour church service which she will get absolutely nothing out of!

Sometimes is is good to get out of the house to study our Creole lessons. Learning a new language as a family is very interesting!
