Photo Caption Wanted

Photo caption This photo was taken in Burkina Faso by scfish7 at one of our child development centers. He uploaded it to our Flickr group a while back.

Got a caption for it?

“Along the wall outside the Compassion project, many children watched and waited while the other children played and sang. With hundreds and thousands of children needing the hope that Compassion brings, our hearts broke to see the ones that could not be helped. Hundreds more are waiting for their chance to be sponsored, to be given hope, to be shown the love of Christ.” – scfish7

Upload your photos of children in poverty to our Flickr group.

    That must be faith testing to have to wait for a sponsor or to even be registered! I saw a short video of a couple that visited Burkina Faso a few months back and they visited a Compassion project there. It’s amazing to me how many kids are at a single project and how there are so many projects like 4000 as far as I understand and still many more kids could be registered and sponsored!!!!!!!

    And I heard the voice of the Lord saying,
    Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?

    Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

    He seems to be walking, waiting by himself. How about “Come, walk with me . . . .”
