    Hmm. It won’t play on my computer for some reason. But then, it’s been running slow; maybe I’ll let it take a nap and try again later. (The ol’ reboot trick usually works.)

    I am not able to listen to this. Am I doing something wrong?

    I liked that Amber! You don’t have a Dutch accent!!! LOL. I liked what you said at the very end about the word “minister” and condescending. We are the ones, who are blessed to serve these people. I feel so honoured to be able to sponsor these children.

    Amber’s descriptions let me view the actual place in my mind. It is wonderful to be able to really see the joy that Compassion can bring to each person all over the world.

    I just found this and listened to it for the first time. This is AWESOME! Think of this woman’s faith and love of God, in her poverty – oh that we should have that much, in our abundance. What an example she is for us. We are so blessed to be able to help our brothers and sisters in Christ, to share the burdens they carry.
