A Glimmering Hope
A young boy living in a certain class
Sleeps on the floor wondering if his next breath will be his last,
A small girl born into a specific pool
Wishes and hopes she has the chance to go to school.
Where hope and light diminishes to a slight glow
And darkness and despair grows and festers in the soul
Injustice grows and corruption flourishes
But like the dawn breaking forth
A sponsor steps forward to show a child their worth
A meal, an education, a simple prayer
For a child goes beyond comprehension and beyond all compare
But there are so many you say
How could I, one person, one family dare say I can make a change
In the words of Dr. King
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”
So will you let injustice prevail?
Or loose the chains and have injustice fail

A Glimmering Hope...
Matt is LOVING his job at Compassion International and he is so passionate about helping children in poverty! Matt is back in school and for his Literature class he was given the assignment to write a poem.
I love my husband's heart and his character! In November he will get the chance to travel to Ecuador with Compassion and love on some kids!
We encourage everyone to sponsor a Compassion Child! Not only will it change the life of a child in poverty it will change YOUR life as well!
Below is his poem...
