I encourage everybody who checks out my blog to go check out another: www.flowerdust.net. There is an awesome woman named Anne Jackson who is on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic right now and is blogging about her trip. A few months ago, it was Uganda.
I think we get so comfy in our US of A, that we forget (or maybe don't know) about the poverty and suffering in other parts of this globe. Anne's blog reminded me of these things, and has inspired me to think about sponsoring a child.
I hope you will check out her blog each day for the new things she experiences on this mission trip!
