As we’ve seen as we go through this series, there are so many things we as women can do to minister to others without neglecting what absolutely should be our main ministry: our families. If you haven’t already, be sure to catch up on the rest of this series here.
Today I want to talk about a different ministry opportunity: Compassion International. I love this organization for so many reasons…
- I trust them. If we’re going to give our money “to help children” we want it to help children. With Compassion International, you can trust that it will. I love that.
- Not only are they working to meet a child’s basic physical needs…they teach the child (and family) about Jesus. They are truly feeding the children.
- They make it easy to sponsor a child. They communicate well and their program is just “user friendly”.
- This ministry is perfect for you and your family to work at together!
We chose to sponsor a little boy a few months ago (yes go figure…we chose a little boy!). The entire experience has been delightful for us. We picked someone who practically shares a birthday with Asa. That made him seem even more real to the boys.
We looked on the globe to see where he lives and learned about his country. His picture is on our refrigerator. We get to sit down and write him letters together. We pray for him together. The boys ask us questions about him from time to time. I love that they have a “brother” across the globe. I think they love it too.
If you have a few minutes…take the time to watch this video.
And then consider if sponsoring a child through Compassion International is a ministry that you and your family could take on together. You won’t regret it.
If any of you have experiences with Compassion International that you can tell about…please share in the comments!
