Live for Him Blog Challenge

Live for Him Our friends at Kerusso, creators of this incredibly fine-looking Live for Him apparel*, have offered up some T-shirts for this little thing we’re doing.

Beginning later today and continuing through Friday, October 2, we will periodically update our Facebook fan page status with questions about this here blog.

If you answer the question correctly and are the randomly selected winner, you will be the envy of all your friends and the new owner of nice Live for Him T-shirt.

You choose size and color — either the deeply stellar black body enhancer above or one of the vividly bold red variety.

We will announce the winner for each question before we post the next question.

Have fun!


*Live for Him products help support unsponsored children in our Child Sponsorship Program, as a portion of the proceeds from each product sold is donated to our Unsponsored Children’s Fund.

    Q#2:

    Compassion has discovered that changed circumstances rarely change people’s lives, while changed people inevitably change their circumstances.

    Individual child development is an inside-out, bottom-up approach that recognizes the God-given value and potential of each individual child, allowing many of these children grow up to become positive influences in their own communities.

    Question #2

    Because it works.

    “During Compassion’s 50-plus years of development work, we’ve seen various approaches to breaking the cycle of poverty in children’s lives. We’ve discovered that changed circumstances rarely change people’s lives, while changed people inevitably change their circumstances.
    Community development is important work that addresses the external circumstances of poverty and is an important complement to our work. However, our primary focus is individual child development—an inside-out, bottom-up approach that recognizes the God-given value and potential of each individual child. Many of these children grow up to become positive influences in their own communities.”

    Jennifer Fowler Oyler was our second winner.

    The crux of why we focus on individual child development rather than broader community development is because we believe that changed circumstances rarely change people’s lives, while changed people inevitably change their circumstances.

    Question three is now live.

    Wendy Funke was our third winner.

    In the midst of this chaotic world, we do not waiver and we do not blink, as we pursue our single-minded strategy of “Christian holistic development of children in poverty through sponsorship.”
