SUBJECT: One on One with Anthony Njoroge

To all my fans,

Based on the many emails, letters and phone calls I have received I’ve decided to give you an opportunity to ask me any questions as you would like.

As part of this, I have already hired quite a number of secretaries and personal assistants to help me answer those questions. So be assured of a timely and appropriate answer.

So in a way this will be like an online press conference.

Yours sophisticated,
Anthony Njoroge

    I can think of a million things I’d love to ask — but here are just a few questions:

    1) Do you have a favorite Bible verse or story that has personal meaning to you?

    2) What piece of the Compassion program had the biggest impact on you and your life? (fellowship with Christians, having access to medical care, meals that were provided, educational opportunities, or something else?)

    3) Are there things Compassion could do to improve their service to young people and families?

    You have a great sense of humor! :)

    Do you have any tips for sponsors, having been through the process from the sponsored child’s perspective? Was there anything your sponsor did that was especially memorable or meaningful for you?

    Thanks and God bless!

    For those of us who don’t know you, would you add an introduction to your blog post. I infer from other comments that you came up through Compassion as a sponsored child. When did you begin your involvement with Compassion (CSP? LDP?) and what is your role today.

    Where do you get your secretaries?

    What is God teaching you personally right now?

    Anthony,

    I am definitely one of your fans. :)

    I am a part of volunteer organization here in the States that offers a summer camping experience and a mentoring program to children who have been victims of abuse and neglect and are in foster care. We are beginning to see the promise of lasting impact in these kids lives because of the investment that has been made by loving Christian adults. However, along the way, there are those kids who make poor choices or who go down paths we prayed they would never go. From what our eyes can see, they are not the success stories. They do not appear to be overcoming the sad and desparate circumstances they were in as children.

    I am guessing that this happens in Compassion’s ministry as well. As you think back, are there children that were right there alongside you in the Compassion program whose story has not unfolded as successfully as yours? Are there children who received the same loving care and benefits of sponsorship who have not thrived and overcome?

    If so, what do you think was the difference? What are the factors affecting whether a child in Compassion’s program will succeed and overcome?

    Please understand that I am not in anyway asking this question in a negative tone – wishing to point out “flaws” in Compassion’s ministry. No – I am a HUGE admirer of Compassion – and I know that we must leave many of these questions in God’s hands. I ask simply to help me gain understanding of how to accept the less successful stories.

    In our local ministry to hurting children, I desire to do all that is within my ability to see children choose LIFE!

    Thanks Anthony,

    Jennie
