I’m proud to be participant with Compassion International’s Blog month in September. This month I’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 you’ll receive your child’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. She’s been waiting 278 days for a sponsor. She’s 10 years-old, she enjoys playing house, playing with dolls and reading. She attends church and primary school.
Then there’s another young man named Daudi. He’s seven years old and lives in Tanzania. He’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. He’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 they’ll gain sponsors, pray that they’ll know Jesus, and pray that God will protect them. Also ask God to reveal His heart for the poor to you.
