To God Be the Glory

I’ve been so focused on the preparations for the 2009 Compassion Sunday campaign that I had NEXT YEAR’S goal in my head when I was reading a recent child sponsorship progress report. It dawned on me just this week that we actually SURPASSED the 2008 Goal of impacting the lives of 22,000 children through Compassion Sunday activities in calendar year 2008.

We are 3,000 sponsorships ahead of where we were at this point in the 2007 campaign! I know that this has been a monumental effort on your part. Your prayers have been heard and answered, and your faithfulness, as sponsors, continues to change lives around the world as well as right here at Compassion! You inspire us! It is such a privilege to serve you!

I firmly believe that the 2009 Compassion Sunday campaign holds great hope for substantial growth in order to confront the challenges of our current global economic climate. I look forward to coming together with you in 2009, to make a greater impact for children in poverty than we have ever done before.

With gratitude and continuing hope,

Greg Birgy
National Advocates Network Director

    The amazing thing is that every child sees 30 people reached with the Gospel. That’s 22,000 x 30 lives or 660,000 lives!!!! (That could swing an election!)

    The cross before me the world behind
    No turning back, raise the banner high
    It’s not for me, it’s all for You
    Not to us, but to Your Name be the glory
