About 2 months ago I joined a group called Compassion Bloggers. To find out more about what a Compassion blogger is you can visit http://compassionbloggers.com/
The month of September is Blog Month at Compassion Bloggers and between Sept 1 and Sept 30 we have committed to the goal to help 3,108 children find sponsors via the internet through Compassion International.
Compassion International is a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.
This past week while on vacation I had the blessing of getting to tour the Compassion facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado. During the tour I was able to learn more about Compassion and their effort to release children from poverty in Jesus name. I was truly amazed because they were everything I already knew they were and so much more.
What makes Compassion distinct is they are Christ Centered, Child Focused, Church Based and Committed to Integrity. This past year 163,527 children and their moms invited Jesus to be their savior. Compassion has 5,659 international church partners and currently there are over 1,172,170 sponsored children.

As many of you know I have 2 children that I sponsor through Compassion. Those two children have deeply blessed me in ways I never could have imagined and they have taught me so much about what is truly important in life and what real blessings are. If you would like to read about my own experience with Compassion and my sponsored children read my past blogs by clicking the following links
These are my Kids 🙂
Matthew 25:40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Proverbs 31:8-9 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.
If you sign up to help us, decide to sponsor a child or you already sponsor a child I would love to hear all about it, so leave me a comment.
