Jesus knows me You’ve met Rafonzel once before. In the photo at the end of Eric’s post about the Leadership Development Program. But photos are so last year. :-)

Watch this short video (just under 10 minutes) and you’ll hear Rafonzel talk about the meaning of Compassion’s programs in her life – like Michelle did – and you’ll see Rafonzel meet her sponsor for the very first time – like Esther described for us yesterday.

You can also view the Jesus Knows Me video on YouTube.

    Compassion, you have got to stop making me cry! :p

    It was so amazing to be able to see Rafonzel meet her sponsor for the first time! This really makes me want to visit my children! :)

    I agree with Amy! These stories are so, so poignant. I pray that our sponsorship can impact our child in such a wonderful way too.

    They edited down the end of the video. I found this video of the complete ending of her message.

    It is low quality but it gives more of the meeting.

    I’m not one for crying or tears. However, as hard as I tried to hold back the tears of joy, I couldn’t help but drop a few tears on my keyboard here. What an amazing ending to this video!
