Growing up in poverty Another clip from our video interview with the Moody Bible Institute scholars.

After watching it, will you sponsor a Leadership Development Program student? You can do so by yourself, but you can also do it as a group, with family, friends, co-workers, your small group, etc.

You can also view the Growing Up in Poverty video on YouTube.

    It is so deeply touching to hear this clip. Thank you so much for posting these interviews. I hear many, many children speaking through these four.

    Wow! This is truly such an powerful video. It was incredibly touching to hear what Tony had to say to his sponsor. Made me wonder what my little girl might say to me one day :)

    I agree with Juli, thank you so much for these video clips, they keep the needs of the children alive and fresh in our hearts and minds. I pray that my Compassion children with have a heart for Christ like these four.

    Michelle thanks for telling me “You should go!” In regards to visiting the kids I sponsor in the Philippines! I did go and I am already finding ways to go again. I still need to dunk a basketball for Angelo in Davao with 2 hands and Reneboy from Zamboanga Sibugay wants me to visit his place. So I am hoping to visit once I can get my dunk for Angelo. Matthew 6:33 “But seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.” I might think this would not be possible but I have already met all of them, so the 2nd trip maybe we can eat lots and lots of seafood, I think on a hungry day I could eat over 100 shrimp! Either way thanks for the encouragement to visit Michelle!

    Beautiful video! You can really tell that they have such a passion to help the children who are in the exact same position they were in.
