Nearly 7,000 miles away from the United States, there’s a war going on in the country of Syria. Many families have been forced from their homes. Parents have had to leave their jobs, and children have had to leave behind toys and friends.
Many of these families now live in refugee camps in nearby countries. They have tents instead of houses. Clean water is hard to come by. This war has put 2.6 million children out of school – some for more than four years already.
Our friends at Focus on the Family Middle East know many families who don’t have the money to buy a school uniform and pay for their children to go to school. They also know people who would love to teach children English in local churches.
You may not have a lot of money to help, but you probably have time, energy and excitement. Here’s what you can do:
1. Go to to Whitsend.org/summer.
2. Print a sponsor sheet and exercise to earn points. You can do it for a week or the whole summer – just remember, the more you exercise, the more points you’ll earn!
3. Ask your family and friends to sponsor your efforts.
4. Beginning in July, tell us how you did and receive a digital bundle from your friends at Adventures in Odyssey and Focus on the Family. The deadline to submit your information is August 31, 2016.
For participating and submitting your information, you will get a free Adventures in Odyssey episode from Album 51. You will also get 101 Surefire Ways to Strengthen Your Child’s Faith – eBook and the audio book of Imagination Station #1, “Voyage with the Vikings.”
Make the most of your summer—exercise for your health and help other kids in need while you do!

Room for Hope
Kim Vogel Sawyer
Neva Shilling is used to being a part-time single mom. Her husband, Warren, travels every other month in order to buy items to stock the mercantile they own in Buffalo Creek. When Warren suddenly passes away, Neva is in for the shock of her life. It turns out that Warren was leading a double life, those months he supposedly traveling he was actually living with another wife and children in a nearby town. His dying wish was that Neva raise his other children as their “Aunt Neva”. When a deputy shows up with a wagonload of Warren’s belongings, as well as his three other children, Neva has a choice to make. Can she find a way to love and raise these children as her own or will she send them away to life in an orphanage? Her own children and the residents of Buffalo Creek don’t make her choice easy, but it’s not long before she realizes she might just have room for hope.
Room for Hope is another fantastic novel by Kim Vogel Sawyer. I really enjoy the way to she’s able to intertwine historical fact with a captivating story. This book is no exception. Neva’s story is an interesting one and it’s told in a way that draws the reader in. it’s as if you find yourself right there with the characters feeling their emotions and joining in their story. Readers of historical fiction will not regret adding this book to their shelves.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for this review. All thoughts are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
