Sheep Droppings

After touring the old hospital we got to see the new one under construction.  Julian took us through the building, explaining several things along the way.  First he explained where the funding came from and I was surprised — Compassion UK and a partner called LemonAid.  Then he told us how Compassion got involved.  He said that a man named Justin Dowds of Scotland had sponsored a child on La Gonave through Compassion, then came to see for himself whether Compassion delivered on all their promises or not.  He discovered that Compassion did, indeed, deliver in every area — spiritually, socially, financially, physically.  The only area that was falling short for the community was the condition of the hospital, so he decided to raise funds to build a new one.  Everything was arranged through Compassion UK and the project began.  I noticed this sign earlier in the dining room…

      You are very welcome Juli, I thought it was a great post. Justin Dowds and his organisation are located about 20 miles from where we live so we know a bit about his ministry and his connection with Compassion. It’s so encouraging to hear from the recipients of Compassions ministry how much appreciated they are.
