Compassion – Make it better for someone else

Sophie from BooMama and Shannon from Rocks in My Dryer are on a trip to Uganda this week to meet and minister to kids who are sponsored through Compassion International.

Husband and I have sponsored a little girl from Ecuador since the summer we got engaged. It has been a real blessing! We have watched our N grow from a little girl to a young lady. We have gone from receiving colored drawings to real hand-written letters from her. We are so blessed to have the opportunity to not only pray for someone specific from a different country and culture than us, we are able to financially ensure that she receives food, gets education and learns about Jesus. All this for only $32/month! That barely buys Anja an outfit or two here. It maybe feeds us for 1/2 a week.

If you’re interested in learning more about sponsoring a child, please visit Compassion’s website. If you already do sponsor a child, you can blog about it, too. It’s Compassion Blog Month.

  1. hey MM…

    I would be honored if you posted a quote from me. I think you were perfectly eloquent…I’m just long winded!

  2. That’s awesome. Husband and I have decided that with each child we have, Lord-willing, we will add another Compassion child. That way each child of ours has a “special friend” from another country they can help support financially and pray for. I don’t expect that small children will be able to save the $32/mo. on their own, but even contributing toward that will begin lessons about helping those in need, as Christ commanded.
