A New Addition to Our Family!

Endeavoring into the bush is not my wife's ideal type of ministry. She loves being a light to high school girls at our small local church. She has also been wanting a compassion child for quite some time. So on Jessica's birthday we decided to start sponsoring Paranai, a Maasai girl from Kenya. This give Jess and I a creative way to minister in the same region together. If you would like to make a difference in the world without having to buy a plane ticket, or having to take a trek through the bush then check out compassion here.

Here's the profile of the girl that we will be sponsoring:

Paranai Torinke
Birthday: April 3, 2002
Age: 6
Gender: Female
Region: Kenya, Africa

Personal and Family Information:
Paranai lives with her father and her mother. She is responsible for carrying water, helping in the kitchen and running errands. Her father is sometimes employed as a farmer and her mother maintains the home. There are 4 children in the family.

As part of Compassion's ministry, Paranai participates in church activities and Bible class. She is also in kindergarten where her performance is average. Playing house, playing ball games and playing group games are her favorite activities.

Your love and support will help Paranai to receive the assistance she needs to develop her potential. Please pray for her.
