Then we took a walk with the whole family around the pretty little town to see her middle school, the town square, and share an icecream together. We kept meeting more family, friends, and neighbors along the way and they were excited to see me, too. They were like, we have Compassion sponsors, too, but we thought they were all old ladies!
They also told me how they pray for their sponsors and that they wouldn't be able to attend school without Compassion. I am so grateful that God worked out this special day to encourage Rubia, build our friendship, and to just have fun! It is so easy to just send the money each month, but I can tell you I am going to work so much harder at those letters, pictures, stickers, and cards because I got to see for myself today what a difference that connection makes.

Rick Beck is a Youth For Christ worker here where he and is awesome wife Kim have been serving for 8 years. They are incredible people and it is such a priviledge to spend time with them. He picked me up from the airport with his 2 youngest sons.
Jimmy: 11 years old, bursting with funny faces, wierd sounds, characters, dances, songs... all at once. :)
Kevin: 14 years old, loves soccer, his family, showing us how many rap songs he knows, and being the strong silent type.
The story of God bringing these boys into the Beck home is nothing less than a miracle, and I can't wait to tell you all tomorrow!
Prayer request: Please pray for Rick: He returns the to States for the next month to fundraise for his ministry. They were already missing %40 of thier funds when in the last year they lost an additional %40 of their budget due to the economic down turn. Please pray that he meets 20 people willing to sponsor them for $100/month so he can return home and continue ministry. I'll tell you more about what he does soon!
