I've Got the Perfect Christmas Gift!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Compassion International


I've got the perfect Christmas gift!

It's perfect for homeschoolers and non-homeschoolers.

It's a gift that will keep on giving.

It's a gift that will help others and be really fun for kids and adults alike.

It's a gift that won't have your kids sitting in front of a game system all day long.

It's a gift that you can buy for the whole family and would cost less than a lot of other gifts that you might by.

It's a gift where you can spread the payments out all year long.

It's a gift that won't break!

It's a gift that will have life long value.

It's a gift that is tax deductible!

It's a gift that you can give to someone who "has everything"!

It's a gift that's easy to wrap but your family will still be surprised.

It's a gift that is perfect for asperger kids (like my Joshua), handicapped kids, the elderly...really for everyone.


So...what is this fantastically, too good to be true, wonderful gift?

You promise not to exit my blog when I tell you?

You promise to read further?

You promise to really think about it and consider giving this gift?

Then I'll tell you.

How about giving a...


this Christmas?


How can a Compassion Child be a great Christmas gift?

Can it really be all of the things I said above?

I can be all of those things plus more!

It can be inexpensive:

  • Sponsoring a Compassion International child is just $33 a month. That's a lot less than on Starbuck's coffee a day.
  • You can pay for a full year of sponsorship at once, or you can pay monthly. 

It can be educational:

  • Teach your child about the world. Remember, Compassion Children are from all over the world.
  • Teach your child letter writing skills. A big part of Compassion is writing letters to your Compassion child. It can be an assignment for homeschool. Just throw it in one of your children's workboxes (only a true homeschooler will know what that means Smile).
  • Teach your child about poverty.
  • Teach your child about helping others.
  • Teach your child to look for bargains as you shop for inexpensive, special things to send to your Compassion child.

Sponsoring a child is very special and rewarding:

  • Your life will never be the same and neither will the life of the special child that you sponsor.
  • You will soon love your new child as if he were part of your family, and you child will love you the same. Here is one of the letters that we recently received from our little Ismael - 7 years old from Nicaragua.


Esteemed sponsors, Tim and Sarah Tinkel. Ismael hopes that you're in good health next to your children and loved ones. He tells you that he has been in sick, but he already feels better. he's happy, because he started his elementary school this year and he really likes to attend to school. He learns many Bible stories at the project. He says that he has heard Moses' story and he was surprised to know how God led the people of Israel through the desert and what attract his attention is how God with his power did go past to all the people of Israel through the sea. He says that God is almighty and merciful with us. He says that he's praying a lot for you and he hopes that you pray for him, because he wants to become true his dream. He hopes to travel someday to know snow and he has to study a lot to do it and that's why he asks for you to pray for him. He hopes that your wife's mom is better. He continues praying for her. He thanks God for having you. he hopes that you're well. Is in good health your wife's mom? He hopes so.

With love, Ismael Jose Arias Narvaez

This letter was written with help of the teacher Juania Navarrete.

I didn't correct the language errors because I wanted you to know what a real letter was like from your sponsored child. I had asked him what his favorite Bible story was and we had been talking about snow. That's why he made references to those things. And, yes, Sarah's mom is doing fine. Could it be in part because of the sweet prayers of a little seven year old from Nicaragua?

Sponsoring a Compassion International child really is a special thing. Please pray about giving the gift of sponsorship to your family and to a special international child this Christmas. Just click here or on the banner above for more information.

Gratitude Challenge
Mood:  happy
Topic: Blog Carnivals!


Tonight I want to thank God for our international children:

Marcelo from Bolivia

Feyber from Colombia

Somi from Indonesia

Emmanuel from Tanzania

Ismael from Nicaragua

Yvone from Rwanda

These are all of our Compassion children in the order in which they were adopted into our family. Marcelo we have supported for almost two and a half years now and Yvone for just nine months. Marcelo we support financially and the rest we are correspondence supporters for. But, we love them all the same. They are all special to us. From Marcelo - who wants us to pray for his parents to go to church with him - to Feyber - who, after some encouragement from me - is beginning to read his Bible more - to Somi - who is fascinated with every snow picture that I send to him because he's never seen snow - to Emmanuel - our oldest child for whom I am praying for a Godly wife - to Ismael - our youngest child who has to have his teacher write letters for him but draws wonderful pictures for us - to Yvone - our only daughter - who calls us her Mother and Father - we love them all dearly and we pray for them all affectionately.

Thank you, Lord, for our wonderful Compassion children. Please bless them all right now whether they are sleeping or awake. Thank you for Compassion International who is rescuing children from poverty one child at a time. Please raise up more supporters for children who are still waiting for the love of a sponsor. Amen

A couple of days ago I talked about thankful I was for the salvation that God provided through Jesus' blood (see here). I found this short video today that explains salvation in an easy way. Please watch it and, if you aren't sure that you would go to Heaven when you die, please consider God's free gift.

An Attitude of Gratitude!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Blog Carnivals!

A friend of mine from the TOS Homeschool Crew has hosted the Gratitude Challenge during the month of November the past couple of years. The challenge is for folks to think about all of the ways God has blessed them in their lives. If your a blogger, the challenge is for you to blog as much as you can about the things you are thankful for and then link it to the Gratitude Challenge homepage where others can click on your link to see what you are grateful for. I decided to participate this year. It's always good to remember God's blessings.

The first thing that I am grateful for is the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross. He died so that we could live for him. All we have to do is believe that we need a Savior - we can't do it on our own. In fact, we can't do anything on our own to gain entrance to Heaven. We just need to trust that Jesus died for us and accept His free gift of salvation. I am forever thankful for God's gift of eternal life. Without Him, I would be nothing. Thank you Lord.

If you would like to participate in the Gratitude Challenge, or if you want to read what others are thankful for, just click on the banner above. And, all year long, but especially at this time of year, don't forget to have "An Attitude of Gratitude".
