I know the verses in the Bible about helping the needy and giving to the poor. But is sponsorship the way to accomplish this?
Does the money you donate to Compassion produce a good return on investment? Do we maximize the impact of your generosity?
As you know the Compassion Bloggers were in the Philippines earlier this month getting introduced to our ministry in very personal way. Here’s a little of what it what was like for them.
What I found while I was in the Philippines were communities of children living in poverty but not allowing poverty to live inside them. I think it’s because they are also focusing on the One.
Children are given the freedom to start dreaming. They are told they have hope for a future, one that doesn’t have to be controlled by poverty.
The concept of partnering with a church may seem simple enough, but what’s actually involved in choosing which churches we should partner with? It’s relatively simple question with a not so simple answer.
The Compassion Bloggers are in the Philippines and I have come along with them. This is our journey, infused with Jesus’ focus. I am going to focus on the child, the one Jesus leads me to, the one who may be alone.
Our latest team of Compassion Bloggers will be in the Philippines May 29 through June 4, 2011. So mark your calendars and be sure to check in often to read firsthand what God is doing to eradicate poverty in this beautiful country.
