    I have closely followed every Compassion Blogger trip since our first sponsorship in 2009. My advice? Have tissues on hand. These stories are so real and so moving that I have to blink away the tears to see the screen. Tears of joy and tears of heartache mingle together.

    I am looking forward to reading these new accounts of Compassion’s work in the field. I am still praying for God to help me visit a Compassion project first-hand, but until that time comes, these posts make me feel as if I am there.

    Praying for the team!

    I love these trips and the glimpses they give us into the work Compassion does in the field. I am really looking forward to reading everyone’s accounts of this journey.

    I absolutely love this picture of this boy with both thumbs up!

    Will be praying for safe travels for the group.I have several children in TZ (and am returning there myself in a few months). I will look forward to all the bloggers’ posts and to absorbing all the information they’ll share about these beautiful kids and the country I’ve grown to love. Can’t wait to travel vicariously next week :-)

      Hi Marcy! This was an older post so the trip to Tanzania already happened. If the trip was happening now we would have given that hug if we saw Subrina!!
