Meet Nehemiah. He is 7 years old. He has a heart for Emmanuel.
He is on a mission to raise $200 to buy Emmanuel a cow.
The other day, he looked at our fridge and saw Emmanuel's latest picture and he was silent. He took the picture off the fridge and asked me, "Mama, why are his eyes so red? Why is his tummy so round?" So we had a conversation about hunger. It was very hard.
I was sitting at the dinner table working, and Nehemiah comes by and brings me band-aids and Neosporin. "Mama, please send these to Emmanuel. It will make him feel better". It broke my heart. I had to tell him that we can't send Emmanuel items, but we can send him money to help.
I was still working at the table. Nehemiah drops a handful of change and a dollar bill on the table. "Mama, can we send Emmanuel my allowance?" Again, it broke my heart.
I showed Nehemiah how we send money online to Emmanuel. He asked me, "Mama, I want to send Emmanuel more money. Can we help his family?" We looked at the gift options, and Nehemiah decided he wanted to buy Emmanuel a cow. This will not only help Emmanuel with food, but will also help his family bring income home.
Will you help?
