The global food crisis.

I knew before reading this blog post that there is a global food crisis going on. But, I hadn't thought about how it affects kids we support through Compassion. One of our children is in Bolivia, where recent flooding and heavy rains have devastated local agriculture. Our other child is in Mexico and has probably not been hit as hard by the food crisis as kids in other developing countries. But, when I read this article I thought about the fact that Compassion isn't just supporting children in the two countries where ours are, they're supporting children in countries where the only meal every day comes from the Compassion project that the children attend. You should read this post. It's not long, but it's deep and insightful.
