As always I am a day late and a dollar short but the thoughts presented in this video make this worth watching!
(Tuesday was Passion Day!)
Right now I am feeling a need to help children throughout the world ...I went to a fireside Sunday presented by Southern Cross Humanitarian explaining that in South America alone there are 40 million children living on the streets. Their parents have died or have abandoned them. There are 6 year old children living in the streets taking care of their four year old and two year old brothers!! This group (sxhu.org) helps with orphanages and with drop in sites, and they are just beginning to make a small dent in the need. They place the children in an orphanage where they are fed and loved and educated. These children have emotional problems that need to be fixed after their abandonment.
Each child they help is a life saved.
Tonight I went with my relief society to the Humanitarian Service Center in Centerville where we packed 112+ cases of hygiene kits . The church put together 90,000 kits and distributed them at the time of Hurrican Ike alone. I am hoping that when Ed and I retire and put in our papers for a mission that we will be able to serve a Humanitarian mission. I want to help. Some one Some where.
For now I will continue to knit hats. I hope and pray that they help someone ....somewhere.
