Advent 2015 December 15
My child is a seven-year old girl in Rwanda. To protect her, I won't give a name. I try to write her every three weeks or so. I am not the most attentive, but letters are very slow and I have only gotten one from her so far. She's cute.
On a related note, 11 million gift boxes went out through Samaritan's Purse. My son sent one, one that sounded pretty chock full.
In all the rhetoric about Christmas being so materialistic, there is really only one answer: Stop buying so much for yourselves and be a better steward of resources entrusted to you.
