Praise God that through the local church and our program, sponsored children have access to the most important gift of all — salvation through Christ.
Even when we don’t have a face-to-face relationship with our sponsored children, prayer can be such a tool in building that relationship. So for the next couple of months, let’s pray together, each weekend, for God’s working in these precious children’s lives.
Gisele’s mother was a housemaid and prostitute when she conceived her. Gisele got very little care from her mother when growing up and on many nights would be locked up in the house alone.

Would you join me in praying for all the mothers in the Child Survival Program, that they would give birth to healthy babies and accept the support and help they need?
Shortly after joining the sponsorship program, Rediet and her sister realized that the child development center was their safe haven where they could enjoy their childhood and forget the misery they witnessed at home.
God hasn’t given up on you. So don’t give up on Him. Wait on Him and on His appointed time.
This chapel message from Bambang Budijanto, Vice President of our Asia Region, is not about praying for others that God will help those who are in difficult situations. It’s about prayer as an authentic, integral and holistic relationship with God.

“We hope we can always uphold our sponsors in our prayers. I hope our sponsors also want to tell more about struggles that they face every day. It will help us not just know them better, it will help us to have better relationships with them and Christ through our prayers.” And so prays Megawati,…
As sponsors you are held in high esteem by the staff in our Ghana office, by the staff of our church partners, and among all the children in the child development centers. Compassion would not be Compassion without you. The children would not have the lives they have without your response to Jesus. We in…
I hit a point several weeks ago where I didn’t think I could handle seeing one more thing or reading one more article about Haiti. I needed some distance and recuperating time, which is a good thing. But despite the time of stress and trauma, there is one thing we must keep doing:
This blog post is about our staff in Haiti. We would like this to be a bulletin board for you to share your prayers and encouragement for them and
Although many of our staff have suffered incredible losses as a result of this disaster, we are asking them to perform heroically, and they are!
I know so many of us are riveted to the news, to our emails, to Facebook, or wherever else we can scrap together some information about the Haiti earthquake. Many of us are wishing there was something more we could do to help, some way to respond to the unimaginable things we are seeing.
When I visited the boy I sponsor in India, Sarath, he didn’t talk so much. We instead communicated with the toss of a Frisbee. But at the end of the visit as he walked me back to the bus, this little boy who had said little else, said over and over, “Please pray for…

As a stay-at-home mom of three girls, ages (almost) 6 and under, my To-Do lists are never ending. Yes, you read right — list(S). When I don’t get them done, which is quite frequently, I feel lazy, discouraged, and just plain ole’ not good enough.
Thankfully, I am aware that Satan is just trying to…

This is Emelia. She is a sponsored child in Ghana. And obviously, she’s praying.
We don’t know what she was praying for in the moment the photo was taken, but if she’s anything like us, it might’ve been for the photographer to hurry up and take the picture.
Will you join us and Emelia in…
You asked your questions of Cesiah, field communication specialist in Mexico, and she answered. Take it away, Cesiah.
1. First of all, thank you so much for all you do for the precious children of Mexico! My question is, as you go through each day seeing a multitude of needs in these children’s lives, what do you find…
Whenever we pay attention to just the news and not God’s Word, it can get depressing, can’t it?! Headlines with doom-filled words like depression and recession and deflation are daunting.
But I recently got an e-mail from our senior vice president of international program, and he included this verse, which helped me take a long deep…
