Our Little Poets

There is great power in the spoken and written word. Teachers empower young minds to express their thoughts in various forms and poetry is a beautiful form of expression.

Today is World Poetry Day and we join the world in celebrating poets and poetry. Poetry builds creative thoughts, guides thoughts, and brings clarity to emotions. The children of Sunrise Home in India have submitted some beautiful poems. Happy reading!

Let’s Celebrate International School Meals Day

School children need a healthy diet so that they can grow, build their immune system, focus in school, and have energy to be physically active.

If you grew up in a household that provided meals outside of school hours, you may have taken for granted the value of schools meals. However, for too many children in our world their only meal may come from their school. From the United States to Myanmar, school meals are precious.

Many sponsors ask what their monthly gift goes towards. Is it just to register their sponsored child at their local Adventist school? No, your money goes so much further! Your sponsored child will stand tall with their friends in their uniform that you provide. After a long morning of studying arithmetic and social studies, they’ll fill their belly with a hot meal thanks to you. Then they’ll enjoy play time energized by the nutrients fueling their body.

International Women’s Day

Happy International Women's Day 6

Stacy, Finance Manager Asian Aid USA

“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that you find strength.”

~Mother Teresa

Today is the day where people across the globe take a moment to think of the women who have impacted their lives the most. Whether is your mother or a famous women of the past, women are being recognized. Yet, how do we define a remarkable woman?

Take a moment and think about what makes a woman great. Is it by the type of mother she is? Or, is it by the total number of people who applaud her?

When you figure it out, then choose to help bring that thing out in the women around you. If you admire the strength of your mother, then encourage women to be strong and help keep discouraging thoughts away. Let’s encourage each other in the small things for the little things are what propels us into the future.

Happy International Women’s Day!
