Happy Birthday to my "Son"

The year was 2000 and I was a freshman at North Greenville College. During our weekly chapel service, we had a speaker talk about Compassion International, and how for only $32 a month you could change the life of a child. I couldn't resist the face of a precious 4 year old little boy. So, for the past 9 years, I have sponsored Solomon Prabhu Tamil Arasu, from India.
I just got this picture in the mail today of the now 13 year old Solomon. I hope he has a wonderful birthday! I have sent money for a birthday gift, since I am not able to send an actual gift. I know I will probably never meet him in person, but one day, I will see him in Heaven, and that is a joyous thought! Happy Birthday Solomon!
