Here is one of the things I love about Compassion
“Compassion’s ministry is focused on the individual child and his or her development. By working holistically with individual children to address their spiritual, economic, social and physical needs, we present every child with an opportunity to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults. Although entire communities may feel the positive impact of Compassion’s presence, our goal is to release children one-by-one from poverty in Jesus’ name. What happens in the life of a child ripples throughout their environment now and in the future. We believe that changed environments may assist children, but transformed children will inevitably change their environments.”
When you sponsor a child, your money actually helps to achieve this………and, regular contact via letters/emails keeps you informed directly………..it’s always great to hear that your small financial sacrifice might have supplied new shoes, new clothes or more importantly, food and water for a family……..but, above all this to enable the development of their “spiritual, economic, social and physical needs” is a privilege………….and like I said, not a big sacrifice!
Would you consider sponsoring a child? Visit the Compassion site here if you are in the USA or here if you are in the UK - perhaps pray about it…………your money is important……..lots of children are waiting to be sponsored!
