I'm a sponsor!

So, technically I have been a sponsor for almost two months already, but I am so happy to announce that I am officially a sponsor of a child through Gospel For Asia! It has been something that I have wanted to do for a very long time. Ever since I was little in fact. But it wasn't until now that I could afford it. How cool that God can use finances to glorify Him.
Anyways, my child is a little girl from Punjab, India. During my trip to India I actually met people from there. In fact, two of the college girls were from there. I love the connection because every time I pray for this little girl I think of the dear ones I know from there as well and pray for them. Once again God is fueling my passion for India and my love for the people there. I am so anxious to return but it is amazing to me that I can still make a difference there while I am in the States.
Sponsoring a child benefits so many. You literally can change someone's life by paying the way for them to attend the Bridge of Hope program. In particular I think of the little girl I am sponsoring. As I've brought up before, girls are seen with not much value in Asia. To provide a quality education for a girl is so important. We can help remind a little girl that she is invaluable and precious. I'm actually starting to tear up as I write this. I cannot imagine growing up in a place where I am told I am worthless, simply because I was born a female and not a male. But that is reality for far too many. I am praying for a revival in Asia. I am praying that God does a massive work throughout that continent and draws millions, billions to Himself. The only way change will happen, true change, is if God changes them. Am I right? Well, that is all for now. I just had to share my wonderful news! I could not be more excited to start this journey.
