Time to Write


Our family has the privilege of sponsoring a sweet little boy, Syrus through Compassion International. Syrus lives in Uganda and it is such a joy to receive his wonderful letters...we are so blessed to be a small part of his life! We are BIG TIME fans of Compassion and believe wholeheartedly in the work they do in Jesus' name throughout the world.

Compassion has sooo many awesome resources and ways to be a part of helping children in need. You can donate online for your regular support or for Christmas or for your sponsor child's birthday...in April it will be Syrus' birthday so we are able to send an extra gift to celebrate his birthday! Since it's not possible to send packages, online donating makes it easy for everyone to make sure that your child has a very special celebration!

Another super cool thing is that you can write your sponsor child online...hello? Could they make it any easier for us?! They have lots of great resources, information and ways to get involved and be a part!  So I'm trying to make it a point to write Syrus regularly to let him know we love him and are praying for him. What better way then to do a reminder post on here...maybe you could use a reminder too? It's TIME TO WRITE your child today!!

Or if you are not sponsoring a child yet...maybe this might just prompt you to pray and consider if God would have you become a part of a child's life through Compassion by reading my posts??! :D Whaddya think? Ready to be a sponsor YET?!!

What a GREAT idea! Thanks for the info. My parents do something similar but not nearly as much correspondence. I like the online thing too...;-)

Amazing! Thank you so much for this post! We are in the process of photographing all the kids in the village we minister to, and having families at our churches back home support one child for Christmas this year! I am so blessed when people sponser a child like this, and was so excited to see your post! I hope it inspires people to stand up! And get involved!!! Blessings, Lindsey

good stuff... in the past, we have given enough to build 3 orphans homes in Uganda. The ministry we hooked up with a few years ago pairs single moms up with a house, to take care of several children, while providing her a place to live, food and a living... the needs there are significant.
