Fabulous Five

compositI recently spoke at my aunt’s church in Illinois about my trip to Tanzania.  I requested some child sponsorship packets from Compassion to have available.  I would like to share with you a little about these five beautiful children that I am currently advocating for.

KendryThis is Kendry.  His birthday is February 8th and he is 3 years old.  He lives in the Dominican Republic with his grandfather and his mother.  There are 3 children in his family.  Kendry likes to play with cars and ball games.



Anna is 6 years old and lives in Tanzania.  Her birthday is March 12th.  (Fun to think that I was in her country when she had her birthday this year.)  Anna lives with her father and mother, and there are 5 children in her family.  She attends primary school and likes playing with dolls and jumping rope.

ViniciusVinicius lives in Brazil and is 4 years old.  His birthday is December 7th.  He lives with his father and mother.  There are 2 children in the family.  Vinicius is in Kindergarten.  He likes playing with cars and riding his bicycle.

anisaAnisa lives in Indonesia and is 5 years old.  Her birthday is on Christmas Day.  She lives with her mom and dad and 1 sibling.  She is in Kindergarten and likes to play with dolls.




Last but not least is Mohamed.  He is 4 years old and lives in Burkina Faso in western Africa.  His birthday is September 28th.  He lives with both of his parents and 5 siblings.  His favorite sport is soccer.

When you sponsor a child through Compassion, you get the chance to speak encouragement into their life.  Poverty tells a child that they are unimportant, but you can help change that.  Compassion uses your $38/month gift to help with your child’s education, provide medical care, nutritious meals, and family support.  Through letters and correspondence you get the chance to speak truth into their life.  You have the opportunity to let them know that they are important, they are special and they are loved.

I will have these children’s packets until July 18th.  If you’ve ever thought about sponsoring a child or would like more information, I’d love to speak with you.  My e-mail is dhhackney@sbcglobal.net.  Let’s work together to make a difference in the world!
