Samuel Orlando~A Life Changed!




Friday night Karen and I worked a Mark Shutlz, Aaron Shust and Jonny Diaz concert that was presented by Compassion. Twenty six children were sponsored and Fifty-two lives have been changed. It was an awesome night but perhaps the best part was the presentation. Aaron Shust presented the video that is included here and then Samuel Orlando came out to speak about his changed life. Nothing makes a bigger impact than a formerly sponsored child offering his testimony regarding how sponsorship changed their lives. The cool thing was getting to hang and talk to Samuel at the table. We have actually met his brother, Tony Beltran who is also a formerly sponsored child. Talk about a small world! But then again isn't that how God works?
