This summer, at The Gospel Coalition Women’s Conference, I happened to come across a great ministry in the Exhibition Hall. After spending quite a few minutes talking ministry with their representative Curtis Wilson, I fell head over for the work that One Child Matters is doing for children all over the world & the impact that they are having on communities. What is beautiful about partnering up with a ministry like One Child Matters, is that there is a impact not only abroad but in our churches, communities, and in ourselves.
The very first time my family ever sponsored a child from another country, we specifically chose a child who was similar to age as our children. It’s been beautiful to watch her grow up and turn into a young woman who is not only growing in her faith but dedicated to being a positive influence on her own community. One of my most treasured possessions is a letter she wrote to us where she shared how she prays for us. When I think of the difference in our lives and opportunities, to know that she is praying for us is a humbling reminder that we are all in this life together. We are all family, brothers and sisters… sons and daughters… of the King. Family cares for and prays for each other, regardless of the number of miles between us.
If your church or Women’s Ministry is looking for an organization to partner with… I am thrilled to recommend One Child Matters as a suggestion. There are children available for sponsorship, as well as missions trip opportunities, and you can request a speaker from One Child Matters to speak at your church or next Women’s Ministry event.
For more information, please visit their website! Or, you can contact Curtis Wilson directly at 614.560.5742 and on Twitter @CurtisDWilson
