This Is What Life Is About

11 Mar

I just watched this video. It’s from a group of Compassion bloggers that recently went to Kenya. While there they visited Mathare, which is a slum. If you think you’ve seen a slum, think again. Check out this blog post.
They visited Compassion International project area where the kids live.
The blog post this video is from is aptly named Hope flows through Mathare”

Kenyan Song in Mathare from Ryan Detzel on Vimeo.

And this, friends, is what life is about. Or what life should be about. It should be about helping those less fortunate than ourselves. It should be about not focusing on ourselves and our problems. Because truthfully, no matter how bad we think we have it, someone else has it much much worse.
The blog posts I read and the video above really changed my attitude today. I was having a stressful stupid day and after seeing those children sing I realized my little problems aren’t important.
If you’ve never sponsored a child, you should. We sponsor a girl from India. It’s not very much money a month and you’ll be changing someone’s life.

Sponsor a child online through Compassion's Christian child sponsorship ministry. Search for a child by age, gender, country, birthday, special needs and more.
