Weekend Moment: Compassion International


My family and I are huge supporters of Compassion International.

We have sponsored a lovely young lady named Margaret from Ghana for several years now.

It has been a joy to watch her grow and to hear how Compassion is meeting her material, educational, medical, and spiritual needs.

A group of bloggers is currently in Ecuador, visiting the Compassion centers there. One of my favorites is Sophie, otherwise known as BooMama. Her post today brought tears to my eyes and I just want to encourage anyone who reads this post to check out her latest entry about meeting a boy named Jonathan deep inside the Amazon: www.boomama.net.

Ann Voskamp’s post about the same young man is incredibly beautiful: www.aholyexperience.com

Catch up with the rest of the bloggers’ stories here: www.compassionbloggers.com

And if you can, please consider sponsoring a child through Compassion today.

I promise that it will bring so much joy to your heat, knowing that you are changing the life of a precious child today.

He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap. —Psalm 113:7

  1. Sophie made me laugh and cry with her post “At least I didn’t call myself Mega Queso.” Thank you for posting this information on your blog!
