October Compassion Joys

It's that time of the month when we take a few moments to name all the gifts and blessings God has brought our way through the ministry of Compassion. Join us!

This month was mostly about birthdays for us....

Happy 17th Birthday to Josseling in Nicaragua!
Perhaps the most exciting part of this month is that I'm making plans to go meet Josseling in January 2015....
Lord willing, I'll travel to NI with my mom and we'll meet our sponsored kids (who attend the same project).
We've been dreaming of taking a trip together for several years and it's exciting to actually be planning it.
Our very dear friends go to NI every year for mission work, and we'll be with them while we are there.
My husband was able to go meet Josseling a couple years ago (with the same friends).

Happy 10th Birthday Lian in Colombia!

Happy 8th Birthday Joylyne in Kenya!

birthday buddies Joylyne and Kayleigh

another HUGE highlight of the month....
 I met Yvonne Reynolds and her daughter Kelsey on Monday in San Francisco!
We've been online friends for a couple years now, and she's a regular contributor here, 
so it's very exciting to meet face to face.

And now it's your turn! Here are some guidelines for you to follow for this link-up:
  1. Link up by entering the URL to your blog post (make sure it's a link to the actual blog post and not just your blog).
  2. Be sure to link back here to Compassion Family and tell others you are doing so. Feel free to grab the button code for your post (it's on the right side of the blog).
  3. Set aside some time to visit the other participants and leave some comment love.
  4. Begin taking notes and making a list for next month.
I should also mention that I reserve the right to remove anyone's submission if it fails to meet the link-up requirements or is inappropriate. 

***If the link up isn't working, simply leave a comment with a link to your post and I'll be sure to visit.
