Thursday, December 6


Tonight, Cheryl and I have the opportunity to volunteer for World Vision. We will be working at the World Vision table at the Jars of Clay/Third Day concert in Hoffman Estates tonight. We get to help people who would like to sponsor a child. For as little as $30 per month, people can sponsor a child from impoverished areas of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and even Eastern Europe. When you sponsor a child, World Vision provides things like clean water, nutritious food, educational opportunities, health care, better housing, and spiritual nurture to the child or family. Our job will be to answer questions, and then help interested people choose the child they want to sponsor and to fill out the necessary paperwork. We will be at the table primarily before the concert, at intermission, and after the show. We should get to see most of the actual concert. So we get to see a free concert, and we get to help people make a positive impact on the lives of children growing up in poverty. Can't ask for much more than that.
