Compassion

Justin and I have sponsored a child through Compassion International for over 4 years now, and it has been such a blessing. Our girl, Rudia, lives in Tanzania and is 14 years old. She was 10 when we started sponsoring her, and it's been so fun to see her abilities grow through the years. She is always asking us to pray for her family members, and the whole family loves to get our letters and pictures. We love to get Rudia's letters, too, and now she can actually write them herself! It is a blessing to be able to make a real difference in someone's life.

For $32 a month, you can sponsor a child through Compassion and change their life. I was just searching on the site for children who have been waiting the longest, and there are 52 children who have been waiting 6 months or longer for a sponsor. There are two-year-olds you can sponsor. When I think about my own two-year-old, tucked safely in his warm bed in his own room with a full belly and every imaginable convenience, it hurts to know that there are many two-year-olds going hungry tonight sleeping on dirt floors in a house the size of our computer room with 6 other family members.

For the cost of eating out once a month, you can help a child receive a Christian education, health care, social skills, and much more.

See for yourself.
