For our Go Mission

Joanna sorted her money so that she had some “special ones to keep” and some for “our Go Mission”.

After hearing about Go Mission at church, inviting others to join us in Natal, Brazil, and seeing me prepare another round of letters to go out she got busy with her money.

She gathered up all her money and was really excited “Mama, I have A LOT of money” (she’s thinking in quantity, not value). And then she told me that the pile on the right is for our Go Mission and the pile on the left includes her rare and special ones to keep. When I asked for clarification she said it’s for our tickets to Natal, Brazil.

My heart was touched! This sweet 5 1/2 year old gathered up all her money and divided it up with some to keep and some to support the mission trip. What a great lesson!

Her not quite $3.00 may not seem like a lot when we’re needing about $4,000 more. But, oh, how sweet. I love that she is already learning to give in order to make the work possible. I hope that she continues this habit throughout her life.
