He called me yesterday to talk through our new Sponsorship Welcome Packets I was putting together.
We talked for a long time about our partners and donors and our relationship with the people who make all our work overseas possible. Zambrano, Honduras took up quite a bit of our conversation and what it was like to minister and work with the beautiful people in Zambrano.
When we began discussing Tierra Bomba, Colombia, it was during that part of our conversation that I really got a sense for his heart. He talked about the overwhelming number of impoverished and starving children who live in the island community of Tierra Bomba. Our talk was about a church in Cartagena that wanted to partner with us to reach the people of Tierra Bomba with the message of hope in Jesus Christ.
Then he said something that caught my attention…he said, “there are so many hungry children on the island of Tierra Bomba. How can I limit the food that we distribute to only 25 or 50 children? How can I NOT feed these hungry children?”
If he physically and financially could, I think he would feed absolutely every child on the island of Tierra Bomba and every child in Honduras!
Our Founder and President, Ernie, has such a heart of compassion for these children and that is what I absolutely respect and love! He and his wife, Robyn, are fully committed to the work of feeding hungry children in other parts of the world. They lead by example by giving of their personal resources all the time to make sure that these children have the food they need. Every single penny that comes into ER International goes directly to helping these children both in Honduras and in Colombia.
To echo our Founder's words I have to ask myself and you, "How can I NOT feed these hungry children?"
I invite you to join me in support of the work of ER International. You can join us by giving a one time gift or by sponsoring a needy child for $22 per month.
