My dearest readers, near and far. Today I feel called to share with you Compassion International, a truly amazing organization that I have been sponsoring two children through, for the last few years.
They have dubbed the month of September "Blogging Month" and they set a goal for a certain number of children to be sponsored. Of course, I had all intentions of writing a post earlier in the month, in hopes to help get more children sponsored, but alas, life got in the way. (How terrible is that?)
That is why today, the last day of "Blogging Month", I appeal to you to please sponsor a child. There are a little over 100 children left that need sponsoring (from their original goal) and it would be a huge blessing to get the rest of these children sponsors!
If you feel lead to do this, please click this photo and follow the instructions on their website
If you're still unsure, let me take a moment to share with you how exactly a sponsorship with a Compassion child works.
Here are the two girls my husband and I sponsor
Yetty(L) is a 4 yr old girl from Indonisia and Safiatou(R) is a 6 yr old girl from Burkina Faso.
At least 4 times a year we receive letters from them & at any point throughout the year we can send letters to them. We can also send small gifts and photos to them with our letters. (And we get photos of them about twice a year.)
We get updates on their community groups, their country, their needs, their prayer requests, and much more.
We pray for them, and they pray for us, & we can even visit them through Compassion trips at a various times throughout the year.
Our donation does not just get handed to the family with a "good luck" label. Instead, our money goes toward directly affecting our sponsored child, her family, and her education, church, and community group as well as medicine and emergency relief that may be needed.

So, what's the bottom line, you ask?
$38/month to sponsor and positively affect the life of one child in poverty.
That's just over $1/day and less than you spend on coffee on your way to work.
It's really not a large commitment financially, but inter-personally it can make a world of a difference.
Please take a few moments to change a life and help bring a child out of poverty.
