    It is wonderful to see what God has done through Compassion…the total life-change for Margret and the way He is touching and changing her community and country by setting her free from poverty and developing the gifts He has placed within her. To God be the glory! Thank you Compassion and Compassion sponsors for your committment.

    What an amazing testimony of what God can do through sponsorship. I remember going to school together with Margret. We entered the Leadership Development program together and graduated at the same time. Thank you compassion for allowing God to use you in our lives. This is what happens. we are changing our communities and nations.

    I LOVE this! I danced when she danced in the clip – and cried at the end. And like Deborah, I want to stand up and cheer at this story.

    Stories like these are so inspiring and encouraging – please continue to share them with us.
