Introducing our Compassion Child
Here she is!
Meet Selina, a 4 year old little girl from northern Tanzania! She has 2 siblings, attends church activities and Bible class and likes playing with dolls and group games. Isn’t she cute? So solemn. We hope to put a smile on that precious little face.
I guess I may have to start learning some Swahili. Unless she uses some other local dialect, of course. Good thing they have interpreters for the letters!
We should receive our information packet in a couple of weeks, then we can start writing to her. It says she is in kindergarten, but I’m not sure if that’s accurate, given her age. She is almost 5. Someone will read our letters to her and write to her for us until she can do it on her own, so no worries.
I’m so grateful for this opportunity to reach out and touch a child on the other side of the world in Jesus’ name. I pray her life will be blessed by our love.
Selina is 9 hours ahead of us and about 8,233 miles away. It would take us more than 16 hours of actual flight time to reach her. Here are the current weather conditions near Selina’s home:
