Silaja from India

The newest member of the Niska "family!" Harry and I attended a Casting Crowns concert last night and both felt convicted when Casting Crowns shared about what sponsoring a young child from overseas can do to change a life. They had the idea of finding a child with the exact same birthday as one of your children. So, that is what we did. This beautiful young girl, from India, was born on the same day as Nathanael. She lives in a village where she is surrounded by HIV and AIDS...and my heart breaks for her.

She already has a lot in common with Nathanael: her favorite thing to play is ball games--and if any of you have spent two minutes with Nathanael, you will know that is his favorite thing too!

I think this is the perfect birthday gift for her and Nathanael. She will receive the sponsorship she needs to protect her from getting this horrible disease and Nathanael will know that for his second birthday, he did something to change the life of another child. Please join us in praying for this little girl as she turns 2 tomorrow!!!!
