You can sponsor individual children at World Vision or send
donations for specific items
families around the world need. The child I'm sponsoring in Mexico even

Translation by World Vision:
In my community there are trees, cows, donkeys, and snakes.
Weather is very cold and windy.
You can also send letters to your sponsored child through
World Vision. They translate your letter and forward it for you.

filled it out and then mailed it back to World Vision. You can
include a picture of your family and additional donations.

around the world.
The sponsoring is a wonderful way to get involved in changing the world.

people around the world to drink fresh water...
you know that more people die from
contaminated water than from wars and violence?
No good act
performed in the world ever dies. Science tells us that no atom
of matter can
ever be destroyed, that no force once started ever ends; it merely
passes through a multiplicity of
ever-changing phases. Every good
deed done to others is a great force that starts an unending pulsation through
time and eternity. We may not know it, we may never hear a word of gratitude
or recognition, but it will all
come back to us in some form as naturally,
as perfectly, as inevitably, as echo answers to sound.
George Jordan (1864-1928)
A Book that Could Change the World
No Greater Love
A Beautiful Book that Could Change the World
"I comfort Jesus in the distressing disguise of the poor." ~
There are a few books that could change the world if enough people read
them and this is one of them. I have rarely been so touched by a book
and I found myself crying at times because the message in this book is
so amazingly beautiful.
It is probably impossible to completely emulate Mother Teresa. She was
so selfless in her interactions with the poorest of the poor. And yet by
reading this book you may be convinced to do something big or small to
help the world.
"No Greater Love" is a book to treasure and to read again and
again. It is truly one of the most inspirational books I've ever read.
Reading this book is truly an expansive experience. Mother Teresa's
words of love fill your own heart with love that you can then share with
In all my years of attending church I can't remember anyone teaching me
to pray the way Mother Teresa does in her first chapter. She then also
speaks about giving, being holy, working to help the poor, forgiveness,
children, suffering and death. She lovingly explores each topic while
making it clear that she is serving Christ in all his distressing
I think that reading this book could really change your life. You don't
have to run off to become a nun to change the world.
