taking a moment to find joy in the little things
We spent our first full week of summer in Central Oregon - a favorite vacation spot of ours.

We came home on Saturday to a busy weekend - we were hosting Compassion Sunday at our church. This was our fifth year, and we had the honor of hearing from Compassion alum, Giltbert Mfitundinda of Uganda. You can read more about our Compassion Sunday presentation and event on my other blog, Compassion Family. I never get tired of meeting these amazing people who have benefitted from Compassion's sponsorship ministry. It encourages me to be a better sponsor and advocate for the children.
