Sorry, I’ve been off the ball for 2 months with my Worthy Wednesday’s. A lot has been going on…some good…some really bad. But I’m hanging in there. Today I have a great cause to discuss with you! Have you ever heard of Compassion International?
This is something I have participated in previously and just in the past few weeks decided to sponsor another child with my extended family!
Their Mission Statement:
Releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name
In response to the Great Commission, Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.
Compassion was grown from one minsters visit to the troops during the Korean War. While there, he was disturbed to learn of the war orphans who were living and dying alone in the streets. Starving and freezing to death. He had to help and soon developed this method for American citizens to make a difference in the lives of Korean War orphans and since then it has grown to a worldwide outreach.
You can make a one time donation or choose to sponsor a child for a monthly fee. Remember, compassion is a world wide organization and a little goes a long way in many countries. What I love most about Compassion is you get to send and receive letters from any child you sponsor so you really get to know them and can encourage them in many ways more than just financially.
“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done.”
– Proverbs 19:17
