Take a Family Mission Trip… Without Leaving Home… through Compassion International’s Child Sponsorship Program! For several years my dear Beloved Builder earnestly prayed to God, to make us missionaries right where we are. Since then a fire has been lit in each of us to minister to children and families locally and through the Compassion Sponsorship opportunity.
It was common, when our children were younger, for us to check out books from the library, search Google Earth, and prepare foods to learn about and connect with our sponsored children’s countries. We would write letters, draw pictures and pray, and we still do. And as this family ministry has grown, just as our children have grown and matured, it has changed. Our kids now have ownership of their own ministries as missionaries at home.
In September 2015 I had the opportunity to travel to El Salvador with one of my daughters.
One of my goals for the trip was to learn more about Child Sponsorship and Child Development through the Compassion International Child Sponsorship program. What I saw and heard during our five days in El Salvador proved to me that the work of Compassion through the local churches is working and lives are being saved and changed. It proved to me that the passion that each member of my family has, to participate in releasing children from poverty, is truly at work and working in El Salvador, and the other 26 countries in which Compassion works.
Are you interested in a ministry that you can do from home? Consider joining us by sponsoring a child! For $38 a month a child will be provided with protection, nutritious food, clean water, health care, educational support and on going teaching about the God of Creation, The Lord of Salvation and the work of the Abiding Holy Spirit. The child’s parents are also ministered too, imagine that a sponsor is standing shoulder to shoulder with the parents, enabling the child to grow up out of poverty.
Take a family mission trip, without leaving home. Sponsor a child living in extreme poverty, today.
