For the past four and a half years, I have been serving as the Volunteer Coordinator for Compassion events in Northern California. In this role, I do a lot of behind the scenes activities to make sure that there is volunteer coverage at all events in Northern California where the Compassion sponsorship opportunity is being presented. This could be any number of events: conferences, concerts, Compassion Experience events, etc.
Our region can be extremely busy!
Over the last six months, I learned that we had 19 events in our region.
For these 19 events, we had 449 volunteers.
At these 19 events with these 449 volunteers, 1293 Compassion children were sponsored!!
What? Say that again!
One thousand, two hundred, ninety three children!
That is basically FIVE Compassion centers of children!!
But the thing I love about Compassion, it is not about the big numbers.
When one child is sponsored, it changes that one child’s life.
That child will have their basic needs met.
That child will learn about how much Jesus loves them.
And when that one child decides to follow Jesus, it impacts them for eternity.
When we look at the overall issue of global poverty, we can feel stuck.
Compassion is helping each one of us tackle global poverty, one child at a time.
I would love for everyone who takes the time to read my blog to sponsor a Compassion child.
Will you sponsor a waiting Compassion child today?
