Iâ€™m proud to be participant with Compassion Internationalâ€™s Blog month in September. This month Iâ€™ll be sharing different items of concern with Compassion, but today I want to talk about the primary way you make a difference in the life of a child and it costs very little money to do.
Do you want to know how you can make a MAJOR difference in the life of a child for only $38 a month? Sponsor a child through Compassion International. Your support helps provide:
- Food and clean water
- Medical care
- Educational opportunities
- Important life-skills training
- Kids will hear about Jesus Christ and they will be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God.
When you sponsor a child youâ€™ll receive your childâ€™s photo, their personal story, and a child sponsorship packet by mail. Not only will sponsoring a child change their future, but it changes our lives as well.
Just looking at the sponsorship page I see one young girl named Mirka who lives in Dominican Republic. Sheâ€™s been waiting 278 days for a sponsor. Sheâ€™s 10 years-old, she enjoys playing house, playing with dolls and reading. She attends church and primary school.
Then thereâ€™s another young man named Daudi. Heâ€™s seven years old and lives in Tanzania. Heâ€™s been waiting 216 days for a sponsor. He lives in an area with a higher risk of exploitation and abuse, as well as, an AIDS-affected area. He lives with his dad, and he enjoys playing soccer, playing with cars, and telling stories. He also attends church and Bible class. Heâ€™s an average student in primary school. Would you consider sponsoring him?
Please go over to the sponsor page out and pray over the kids. Pray that theyâ€™ll gain sponsors, pray that theyâ€™ll know Jesus, and pray that God will protect them. Also ask God to reveal His heart for the poor to you.
