    Let’s remember that even though there are tragedies and calamities, some people live in perpetual poverty. It is important to reach them with the Gospel and Biblical principles that will lead them out of their current circumstances.

    I love it! I loved how it changed from darkness in the beginning to light.

    Very cool. Very symbolic. Hopefully very successful in making an impact!

    I know I work here, but this is the first time I’ve seen this video.

    I love these videos. It’s a nice change after so many years of the same kind of video over and over.

    Very trendy yet compelling.

    Love it!

    Thank you for this reminder today.
    The little that each one of us do has a LARGE impact. I needed that encouragement today.
    Now, to respond…today is a great day to write and encourage my Compassion kids. 🙂

    Trendy, Sterile, Very secular.

    Where are the children’s faces?
    Remember child focused…

    Where is the church?
    Remember church-based…

    Where is Jesus?
    Remember Christ centered… not just a tagline snuck in at the end…

      you have some good points, but I did really like this video. sometimes we see too many pictures, we hear too many “religious” reasons. I think this video is engaging in its simplicity and good for a share-on-facebook-click-here-to-learn-more sort of thing. which is what I am about to do! 🙂
