Did you know that Sri Lanka has elephants? In fact there are somewhere around 4,000 elephants that call this island nation home.
Don’t tell my 4-year-old daughter her daddy is going to where elephants live. She’d probably try to stow away in my luggage.
Historically, I don’t usually post on SFL on the weekend unless there’s some kind of breaking news. Three years of daily blogging takes its toll and I need a day off once in a while too. Beside which, most of you are busy on the weekend and don’t catch up here until Monday anyway.
But for the next few weeks as I prepare to travel to Sri Lanka I’m going to be taking Sunday to do a spotlight section on both the country of Sri Lanka itself and the efforts of World Vision to help children there.
To start, I’m going to do a bit of shameless self-promotion by showing you my very own personal page over at World Vision’s website
I know that the people who read SFL are a generous and loving group of people because they have been generous and loving to me on more than one occasion. For those of you who are able please do prayerfully consider sponsoring a child who desperately needs your help. And if you do sign up to sponsor a child within the next few days feel free to send me their name and I’ll do my best to coordinate with World Vision to see if I can meet them on your behalf while I’m there.
