A Follow-Up on My Last Post: Infant Mortality Video
I watched this video this morning over at the Compassion blog. It seemed fitting, especially since I just posted about the Child Survival Program.
I couldn’t help but tear up, allowing the gravity of the topic to land on me for a few minutes. The reality that 9 million children a year die before their 5th birthday—my son turns five in a few weeks, Lord willing.
For me, having lost a child to something I couldn’t control, it hits even harder. I mean, I can do something about diarrhea. I can help people learn how to sanitize bottles and breast feed their babies.
You don’t have to feel the same way, but this is a very exciting ministry to me.
