As my regular readers know, I am a Compassion Blogger. What is a Compassion Blogger? Someone who believes in the mission of Compassion International and uses their blog to spread the word about the work they are doing for children in poverty around the world.
For the last few years, our family has sponsored a boy in Kenya. We receive letters from him every month and see the progress he is making in Compassion’s program. Compassion’s ministry to children in poverty around the world saves lives, gives hope, and teaches them about Jesus. Sponsored children are able to attend school each day, eat meals, and receive needed healthcare. Being in school gives them hope for a future outside of poverty and prevents them from being drawn into slavery and prostitution. And most importantly, through Compassion, they learn about their Savior. These children hear the gospel and often learn for the first time that they are loved by the God who created them.
It’s because of the amazing work they are doing that I chose to become a Compassion Blogger. Once a month, I receive an assignment to blog about. Sometimes it is about a specific child who needs prayer and support. Other times it is about a specific project Compassion is involved with. Would you be interested in blogging for Compassion?
