When Did We See You Hungry and Feed You

by SomeGirl on March 7, 2010 · 4 comments

I know I said I wasn’t going to blog on Sunday’s, but my husband and I agreed to make an exception today. Last month, when I found $50 and was thinking of what to do with it, I mentioned that we were going to sponsor 2 children through Compassion International. Well, time flew by and we hadn’t done it yet… but, today my family gathered around the computer and read through Kristen’s updates from Kenya at We Are THAT Family and watched this amazing video on her Day 4 blog post of a grown, formerly-sponsored child and the impact that sponsorship made on his life (it is WELL worth the time… get some kleenex and watch through the end):

Then, after I sniffed back the tears and wiped my eyes, we prayed and chose our children to sponsor.

The first child we chose just happens to be 2 days younger than our oldest son (which is neat to think about… when my oldest was 2 days old and abandoned at a hospital in Russia, Tugumisirize was born) and both love to play with cars. The second child we chose, Musika, is a year and a few weeks older than our youngest and they love soccer the same. Both are in Uganda. We are thankful for the opportunity to be a part of their lives through sponsorship with Compassion International (and to have them as a part of our lives).

Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:37-40

For more personal information on sponsoring a child I’d HIGHLY recommend you check out Kristen’s Compassion journey at  We Are THAT Famiy and Brad Ruggles’ Learning How To Live.



I think you are one of the most wonderful, loving, caring, kind, generous,compassionate people I have ever been lucky to know. That’s what I think.

John, You are too sweet! But, I’m really not all that… and I feel just as lucky to know you!

“We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19


I like that you got everyone involved in the picking process. :0)

Thanks, it was really neat… Zachary knew right away which child he wanted to choose by looking at the pictures and it turned out they are 2 days apart. Eli wanted lots of the children, but we went with Uganda since we’d like to visit them sometime and it would be easier in the same country… when we saw the search results he got really excited and chose Musika’s picture. I like that they were involved, too. :)
