Pardon the Duck Dynasty reference (you got to love Uncle Si). This past Sunday I was able to make a presentation for Compassion at our church. It was our 2nd year in a row of participating in Compassion Sunday. Last year 25 children were sponsored. Setting up my display with the 20 sponsorship packets that were sent to me, I had a few reservations about how this year would go. After all there is a high percentage of families that already sponsor in our church.
So my goal was 2-fold. To inform our newer friends about the work and mission of Compassion and to encourage those existing sponsors to keep writing letters. I wanted to remind them of the vital work they were doing. Everything came together wonderfully. When I left the building that morning 11 of the 20 sponsorship packets had been taken. There was a mix of new sponsors and families adding another child to their Compassion family.
I am so blessed to be part of a church that gives of itself to serve those around the world. I am anticipating and prayerful that after next Sunday even more of the children will be sponsored.
Of course you can always find beautiful kids waiting for a sponsor at Compassion’s Website
