Wow. Sharing this on Facebook!
I really enjoy the message!! It made think twice! God do uses children, to impact the kingdom of God!!! The words, we write in our letters, are importanted to the children!! God Bless!
I love this part: “What are we going to do? We’re going to stay faithful to that call…” Thank you so much for this.
@Amy Wallace – I can understand how one would cry while watching this…but I didn’t.
However, I DID cry when you said, “I can just imagine him sitting on Jesus’ lap in heaven right now, rejoicing everytime one of his friends becomes a Christian.”
What a wonderful image!!!
I’m with you Amy, But I cried when lassie came home. This is a powerful message. I know that compassion’s motto is, one child at a time, but this message supports what I’ve said, many times, that one child is just the beginning, many more are affected thru that one child.
Wow, what a powerful message!
I cry every time I hear this story. I pray that my life may have as much of an impact as this little one’s did.
I cried while watching this, surprise surprise. That child accomplished more in his 6 years than many of us have, and I can just imagine him sitting on Jesus’ lap in heaven right now, rejoicing everytime one of his friends becomes a Christian.
Wow thank you for sharing this. I am going to link to this on my Saturday Post.
The story of the Ecuadorian boy is sad. I love hearing it, though. I first read it in “Too Small to Ignore”.
I’m quite a bit older than six and haven’t even scratched the surface of what that little boy did.
I love hearing the stories b/c it helps me stay and learn ways to pray and become more involved with Compassion!!!
