Every year around this time, I post a little blog asking people to consider sponsoring a child through Compassion International. The saint and I have sponsored many children throughout the years and consider it part of our tithing. A few details are below. If you can’t support this ministry now, consider praying for these children and their families instead. Prayers are always free, needed and welcomed. Together in the Body of Christ, we can be the hands and feet of God. We can let these kids know that they matter and are loved.
For $38/month, you will be linked with a child (either you choose through Compassion’s website, or you can let them choose a child for you). You’ll exchange letters throughout their duration in the program, getting to know your child as they grow. There are options to send gifts as well, like birthday or Christmas gifts. Compassion approaches child welfare holistically–you’ll receive information on what local church program your child is a part of, and updates through their letters, or their local pastor’s letters.
The saint and I highly enjoy reading and writer letters to our kids. They come from all over the world, and all have their own dreams, personalities, abilities and stories to share. We feel very blessed and honored to share God’s love with these children and their families.
Thank you and God bless.
