A Life Changed: Jey’s Story

At the age of 9, Jey was sent to prison for stealing a purse. It was from there he prayed,

“God, if you exist, please take me out of this prison. I don’t want to live this life anymore. And when you get me out of prison, please get me out of poverty.”

You can also view A Life Changed: Jey’s Story on YouTube.


Compassion Sunday is an easy and unique way to bring life-giving change to children around the world — children like Jey.

Will you help change the story for a child living in poverty through Compassion Sunday?

    I had the privilege also of meeting Jey at Kingdom Bound. I didn’t get to hear his story (I was helping with a packet pass, and couldn’t catch all of what he said), so I came back to this post so I could listen to it. I am so happy I did because I love hearing how Compassion has changed Jey’s life in Jesus’ Name! Jey is going to get married next month, and he will be the 1st one in his family to get married! 🙂

    I had the opportunity to meet Jey at a Compassion event and was touched by his story. He’s such a great guy and a true testament to the work that Compassion does.

    It’s such a privilege to sponsor a child through Compassion, to change the world for one child at a time..
