One of our church partners in Thailand has “graduated” from Compassion’s support and now hosts a holistic child development program on their own.
In part two of the “Ask Jimmy” blog series, Jimmy unpacks how we select the countries in which we work, shares about some positive global development in those countries and explains why we choose to partner with the local church.
Partnering between the resource-rich part of the Church and the resource-poor part of the Church is not something particularly new or noble. It is just what we should do. It is simply what Paul asked the early Church to do.
Partnership is at the center of what we do at Compassion — we not only partner with you, our sponsors and donors, but also with the local church around the world. So it’s worth understanding what we mean by partnership and how we do it.
