This post is from the Compassion website. Just a reminder to always be thankful, and to seek the Lord for ways to share with others’, God’s absolute grace and blessings!
An Overwhelming Need
“Every three seconds a child under age 5 dies from poverty-related causes that Compassion’s ministry is skilled at preventing. But it takes only one voice — yours — to fight poverty.
By hosting a Compassion Sunday event, you can expand your personal ministry and help transform the lives of hundreds or even thousands of impoverished children and families worldwide. And you can be a part of it without spending a single cent.
Reversing the Tide
It all starts by being willing to “speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves” and “defend the rights of the poor and needy” (Proverbs 31:8-9) and by hosting a Compassion Sunday event at your church. Compassion Sunday is an annual national campaign that links impoverished children with loving sponsors. Last year’s campaign resulted in nearly 21,000 new child sponsorships. With your help, we hope to surpass this number again this year. It’s the perfect way to answer God’s call to help the poor and needy children.
The official Compassion Sunday 2008 date was April 13, but you can host an event any day of the year that works best for your church. We provide, free of charge, everything you need and will walk you through the simple process from start to finish. Hosting a Compassion Sunday event is easier than ever.
