It’s good to have a wider view of the world than just that of our own narrow introspective little lives.   Sometimes I  get so caught up in the mundane everyday stuff that we all have to deal with, that its easy to forget that there is actually a bigger picture!    Working as an Advocate with Compassion is one of the things that helps me to keep my focus both on the wider world and on the things that are close to God’s heart.

So how do I know what’s close to God’s heart you may ask?   That’s easy!  The bible contains almost 3000 verses that speak about poverty and injustice  ….   my guess is that if God mentioned something that often it must be pretty important to Him!

Compassion is a child development ministry that works to release children from poverty, it is not the only organisation which does this but I believe that it is one of the best.   My reasons for saying this are many and not at all arbitrary.   Compassion works in 26 of the world’s poorest countries partnering with local churches  to provide holistic child development programmes  which focus on the spiritual, economic, social and physical needs of children living in extreme poverty.    Compassion’s programmes are unique in that they are Christ Centred, Child Focused and Church Based enabling the children they work with to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Compassion also has financial integrity something that is important to most of us who want to give to good causes and perhaps more especially when money is tight and we want to be sure that what we do give is put to good use.  Compassion International has been consistently ranked in the top 1% of charities for financial integrity and has been recognized for superior financial integrity by several publications and financial accountability groups.

These things however, although very important,  do not tell the story of  the impact your sponsorship can have in the life of the child you choose to sponsor, that is better done by the children themselves, below is a video in which Michelle Tolentino, a formerly sponsored child from the Philippines tells her moving story ….. this video comes with a tissue alert!!


You can choose to change a life today by sponsoring a child through Compassion
