Jose’ Can You See?????

jose_miguel
Today we met Jose’ Miguel…
He is the Compassion child that Mercyme has recently started to support. We all individually have supported Compassion kids for years, but in this new phase of MM and Imagine a Cure’s connection with Compassion, we thought it would be awesome support a child with special medical needs. Well today we got to meet him, and you can tell from the picture, he fits right in with us!!! This kid is hysterical…he loves to laugh…mostly at me. We were asking him what he like to do, and he said play baseball and a cricket like game that the kids here have made up. I said I’m not very good at sports, and he said…” you’re like a little baby….hahahaha” So my name is now Ninero Loco, which we thought meant crazy baby, but in fact means crazy babysitter….who knew?!?!?!

Please pray for Jose’ and his family…between he and his 6 brothers and sisters and his Grandmother and step mother, there is bed in the house. We hope to rectify that as soon as possible, but this is only 1 of MANY needs in this community. Pray that Jose’ and his family will all come to know Christ as savior, and be a light in their village!!!!

    What a blessing to meet your precious sponsor child.
    It’s my dream to meet ours one day in Ghana, God willing, it will be so.
    Thanks Mike for sharing this with us. You do look like a Ninero Loco in the picture though!!! : )

    Jose is cute & totally looks like he’s a perfect fit. It’d be neat if we could meet our sponsored kids someday, they’re in Africa. I’m sure it was quite an experience for you guys! ~May God continue to richly bless Jose, his family & Mercy Me!

    It’s neat that you got to actually meet up with each other . May God bless him, his family, and you guys as you continue to give back. :) That second pic, you look like you’re auditioning for a Buckley’s commercial. :)

    Can you blame the child for thinking you’re a little crazy–it doesn’t take long to figure out all of you are a little strange. =))) We love you that way though. What a huge blessing for all of you and for him to be able to meet. I pray that he and his family will see that you are doing this because of the One who shines through you. That they will understand and realize that Christ is their utmost need above all else, as you minister to their physical needs.

    very cool!! I bet you all had a blast on your visit! I have been sponsoring a girl in Peru thru Compassion for over a year now and it is so awesome to hear how much we touch their life and vice versa. Compassion is a great organization. One day I hope to meet mine – when I can afford to, but for now I continue to sponsor her and write letters :)
