Ministry Spotlight: Compassion International
At least 1/3 of the world’s children live in extreme poverty — many are undernourished, can’t go to school, and are unhealthy.
Compassion International is working in 26 countries around the world to make sure these children receive the physical, emotional and spiritual support they need to be released from that extreme poverty. By becoming a Compassion sponsor you provide hope, love and protection for a child who might otherwise become a victim of extreme poverty.
Kids at risk are those who live in an area with a higher risk of exploitation and abuse. Kids at risk can take many different forms including:
• Child prostitution
• Physical, emotional and sexual abuse
• Harmful child labor
• Early marriage and harmful cultural practices.
• Kids who are orphaned, living in foster or group homes face particular dangers of abuse or exploitation.
The best way to fight the risks kids in poverty face is to protect and prevent it through sponsorship. You have the opportunity to reach out to children in very dangerous places of the world with the support, love, and hope they need to overcome the dangers of poverty and become productive, Christian adults.
Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.
Your support provides:
• Medical checkups, which often save lives.
• Nutritious food.
• Health and hygiene training.
• Educational assistance.
• Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief.
• Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children.
Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God.
What is Ministry Spotlight?
Every month, we take a moment to shine the spotlight on a ministry that is serving our communities and sharing the Gospel. Think of it as a virtual high five. These ministries are going above and beyond to serve our communities, share the Gospel and spread love. This is our way of saying thanks and offering a hand of help and prayer.
