Here are the precious children I've been praying for. I only have these packets until October 4th and then they will have to be returned to Compassion.

Working adults in her community earn the U.S equivalent of $78 a month, but Kimberly's grandmother is unemployed.
Her community is in need of employment opportunities and vocational training.
Update! If you decide to sponsor either Katerin or Omar, my friend Hannah will take a gift to them for you. She's visiting Honduras in December and is taking bags of toys/clothes/anything you can think of to other Compassion children. This would be a quick and wonderful way for your child to know you love them.

Katerin helps her mother at home by carrying water, making beds, and running errands. Singing, playing with dolls, and playing group games are Katerin's favorite activities.
