Meet Compassion staff members, Christopher, Ela, James and Natalie. Their stories reflect the beauty of the One we serve in our stewardship, integrity, dignity and excellence.
Traits that we greatly value and strive to consistently demonstrate are integrity, excellence, stewardship and dignity. If you were to add a fifth trait to this list, what would it be?
A testimonial life should bear witness for the gospel in word and deed. Will unreached people be able to testify that we are Christians who walk the talk?
Integrity is a virtue for moral decision making and personal character building.
Some of the places where sponsored children live are rife with corruption. Pray that your sponsored child would reject corruption and would be examples of honesty and integrity in their community.
To walk in integrity is to proceed correctly before God and men. It is to give without expecting something in return.
The Leadership Development Program taught Arun a great number of things. He learned about time management, Christian discipline and social awareness. Most importantly, he learned how a Christian must respond to contemporary issues.
Every decision we make is based on our “distinctives” — child focused, church based, Christ centered and committed to integrity. But do we actually live up to this?
This work is imperfect because it involves people. Compassion is not program-focused (though program models are used) – it’s intensely, insanely, beautifully child-focused.

Our ability to take ownership of our actions is a necessary skill in escaping any strain of poverty – physical, emotional or spiritual. Actions have consequences. It’s something God tried to show us through Adam and Eve.

Integrity is not common.
“But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” – Matthew 7:14, NIV
