Throughout our 60 years of ministry, we’ve been blessed by an array of artists and speakers who, through their talents, demonstrate a passion for releasing children from poverty. In fact, many sponsors first hear about our ministry through an artist or speaker.
I was poking around the ministry archives again when I stumbled upon a commercial recording from a famous ministry spokesperson.
I had NO idea this person was a spokesperson for Compassion so I was thrilled I was when I heard her voice.
Can you think of who this famous woman could be? I’ll give you three hints:
- She is considered one of the greatest women in country music
- She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
- She was the wife of Roy Rogers
I know, I know, the third hint gave it away!

Isn’t that fantastic?! I can’t help but wonder how many children were sponsored due to that 14-second clip.
How about you? Did a Compassion artist or speaker introduce you to our ministry? If so, who was it?
