Compassion Sunday

April 21st was Compassion Sunday. Compassion International is a non-profit organization that matches poverty-striken children with sponsors. About a year ago, we decided to sponsor Pion in Burkina Faso. She was the youngest girl we could find and figured she would grow up with out girls.
Compassion does a national event called Compassion Sunday once a year which spotlights their organization and allows volunteers, like me, to present the ministry to churches. My church, Temecula Community, was extremely gracious to allow me to hype the event from the pulpit for the two Sunday;s prior. I then showed the Compassion video and solicited at least nine new sponsors for needy kids. I never really thought the Lord would use me this way, but I guess between I must have a place in my heart for "causes". If you want to sponsor a child, let me know...there are still a few more who need loving, committed people to "change their story" forever.
Love, Lauren
