Hi friends!  Thank you for joining us for another Joy the Baker Podcast!  This week we’re talking about my international travel plans, my air travel neck pillow, and butt problems… because that’s just how it goes.  Also, I’m sorry I sound sick.  I’m sorry if I sniffle in your ear.  We wanted to get a pocast recorded for you since we won’t be able to post next week.

I was inspired to sponsor children through Compassion International because of Tsh of The Art of Simple.  Her podcast really inspired me.  Give it a listen!

So!  Because I started sponsoring children through Compassion, now I’m going to Uganda to see how Compassion works there.  And I get to meet one of my sponsored children!

Tracy is concerned by ability to text and… so am I.  Tracy found 15 Fun Facts about Uganda .  Pineapple in my future.

Tracy found a really great article about social media.  5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Posting to Social Media.  I’m guilty of seeking approval.

Sorry this podcast was on the shorter side!  We’ll be back in two weeks with an update on Uganda, and our regular ridiculousness.

In the meantime, perhaps you’d like to go down the rabbit hole of travel gear?  Yeesh!

I went nuts buying undereye gel pads, sleeping masks, and travel neck pillows.

Thank you for listening to another podcast!  We’ll be back in two weeks with lots of big stories and good times (and no sick voices).

  1. Really cool, traveling to meet my sponsored child someday would be a dream! I’ve sponsored a girl in Colombia through Children International (another super great org sponsoring kids and families) for the past 8 years or so. Every time money gets tight (when i was living on student loans during grad school), I remind myself that there isn’t and won’t be a time when I truly, truly can’t afford to change her life- even if it means scrimping while I’m in a low cash period. Anyway, good on ya- thanks for the photos.

  2. I now sponsor a little girl from Uganda because of this podcast and Joy’s blog posts. Her name is Maria. I can’t wait to get to know her. Thank you for letting me know about Compassion International. I have always wanted to sponsor a child, but never trusted the companies I saw on TV. Compassion seems like they are really helping people and doing it for Jesus, which I am fully behind. Thanks for your always funny podcasts. I look forward to them every week. Y’all are bonkers awesome!

    Still think you should have called this podcast “Butt Problems”. Looking forward to the next podcast!

    I have been with Compassion Canada for a long time. I sponsor a little girl from Brazil. It is such a joy to be a part of a family and to help them out.
