Being honest, sales have been slower than I had hoped for. People close to me have patted me on the back and congratulated me on the achievement without actually buying a book. However, having given the book to God from the outset I am learning patience and trusting that He will use it to impact lives, even if I don't see it.
Having said that, 2015 has been a year of incredible God-given opportunities to share about the work of Compassion, seeing kids sponsored and lives changed. I've had blog reviews, newspaper and magazine articles, radio and TV interviews and church visits.
|Eight kids were sponsored at St Paul's Lutheran Church on June 14th!|
|At Wyndham Community Church. Four kids were sponsored from a church of 16 people!|
|Meeting Silas Mwangi, a former sponsored child from Kenya!|
|My updated Compassion family: 16 sponsored kids, plus five correspondent children (they have a financial sponsor; I just write)|
