So why Compassion? Our kids picked it. We asked them to research different child organizations from which we could sponsor a child. They got on the Internet and googled different organizations. After their research they had lots of different reasons why they thought Compassion fit the values of our family best but really it boiled down to Compassion's ministry focus. As quoted from their website the organization is:
Already much discussion has begun in our house. Challenging discussions about how we have so much when some have so little and how we live out Jesus' love for all. It is good discussions and ones that need to be had.
If you feel drawn to sponsoring a child please check out Compassion Canada. There are so many children waiting for over a year for sponsor.
