The first child I sponsored through Compassion was in 1999 when I was a student in college. The experience of getting to know a child on the other side of the world AND have the humbling opportunity to provide for their basic needs and support them in prayer, impacted me on every level and even jumpstarted my activity in mission related trips during my college years.
Fast forward to 2017, and together with my family we have sponsored another child, this time in Columbia. As our relationship with him grows, my hearts desire is to someday meet him in person. Please visit Compassion International and sponsor a child.
