Joshua, my grandson, and our family chose a life-giving gift for AIDs orphans in Africa through ZOE Ministry’s Christmas Animals project. We relaxed at dinner one night last week and talked about the kids in Africa who need ZOE’s ministry and what they might appreciate most right now, as well as in the future. Then we discussed each animal and how it might have both an immediate and long-term impact to provide for their needs. We also talked about how God created animals and how blessed we are to have them.
After careful consideration, Joshua picked which animals we would provide. He chose a goat, because it gives milk and you can either drink it or make cheese or yogurt and he loves both, especially Gogurt. Then he chose four chickens, because they provide eggs and Joshua loves scrambled eggs! Which led to me making scrambled eggs the very next morning.
I thought it was so great that Joshua, with his sweet innocence and generous heart, wants others to have and enjoy what he loves best.
