Can You Hear Me Now?

     Do you speak on behalf of those who do not have a voice?  Do you use your gifts generously to fulfill a need - expecting nothing back?  Do you want to make a difference in the life of a child? 
Seek justice, encourage the oppressed.  Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.  ~Isaiah 1:17
     I imagine that I am the play phone pressed tightly to this little girl's soft cheek.
     Hello.  Can you hear me now?  I whisper into her ear, "Someone cares."  Someone cares for you.  You are precious and loved.
     Briiiing!  Briing!  Sweet little girl, hunger gnaws at your belly in the night, but there is hope.  From a land far away someone heard your cries.  They have been answered.
     A message of encouragement and joy has been left for you.  Grow strong little one.  Grow in hope.  Grow in love.  Grow in peace.

     During the month of September, Compassion reaches out through bloggers to find sponsors for 3,160 children living in poverty.  Won't you help?  Please go here.  There is a child who needs you.
