In honor of the true spirit of Christmas and in celebration of Christ’s birth, my family decided to do something different this year. The “grownups” are replacing gifts to one another with the sponsorship of a life in Watoto located in Uganda, Africa. Watoto rescues vulnerable children and women from poverty and destitution, restoring them to a life filled with hope and a future.
Today, Christmas day, each individual family will share the story of the person they chose to sponsor with our larger family. I hope this is the start of a new tradition and that each year we will continue to share God’s love by giving to those who are less fortunate than we are.
