Last night I went to Schnucks to get a movie to cheer me up. I checked out The Visitor because the box said "uplifting." While it was not uplifting, it was a gem of a film.
I interviewed a woman in Columbia a few days ago, Steffany Boster. Steffany adopted two children from Ethiopia and is currently hosting an Ethiopian woman in her home. She has started numerous homes and projects to help people in several African countries. She isn't a part of any organization. She isn't a missionary. She's a mom with means.
Just like the main character learns in this movie, there are opportunities all around us to make an impact in someone's life. Sometimes going out of your way to help someone can change your life for the better too. Check it out!
