I was compensated by World Vision for my time in writing this post. All opinions are my own.
One of the challenges that I face as a parent with young kids and a busy schedule is that there’s just not a lot of time to volunteer or exercise. I don’t know about you, but these 2 activities seem to get downgraded on the priority list so quickly. Pre-kids it was pretty easy to get involved in organizations I love and we also had plenty of time to exercise, specifically, run road races. Now, there’s just not enough time or energy to do it all, but I KNOW these are very important pillars of well-being. Plus, I just enjoy them.
Please tell me I am not alone.
Since I really do love global missions, I want to remain a supportive and active member of the global population, helping and participating as I can. This year I have had the pleasure of partnering with World Vision, a humanitarian organization that helps people all over the world. They have made it easy for me (and our whole family) to participate as a global citizen, something that I desire but feels out of reach at this time of life.
- We started sponsoring a little boy from South Africa back in December. I picked him because I have been to South Africa and he is almost exactly the same age as my youngest son. It was just perfect. We have his pictures around the house, talk about him regularly and pray for him almost daily. My boys are starting to get the idea.
The boys had to get Mesuli, our WV child, just right for the picture.
