Who am I today?

Some days I have to ask myself that, at times I seem to have so many different ‘hats’ to wear ….. wife , Mum, friend, blogger, employee, quilter, counsellor, crisis manager, accountant, shopper to name but a few, but today I’m a Compassion  Advocate.

An advocate is a person who speaks on someone else’s behalf, so today I want to speak on behalf of  some little ones who can’t speak for themselves.     This month  is ‘Compassion September’ when we hope to encourage as many people as possible to consider becoming sponsors,  below are the profiles of five children who currently need sponsors would you please pray with me that each of these children would find a loving and supportive sponsor very soon…….
