Compassion Sunday

Posted By Jessica Fisher On September 26, 2010 @ 1:50 am In Giving,GOD | 6 Comments

About a year ago, our family began sponsoring a child who lives in poverty. Joseph lives in Peru. He regularly sends us drawings and letters, sharing his prayer requests and telling us about his life.

It’s a different life than my children live. And it’s good for us to know him. And it’s even better for us to be able to share from our plenty with him. It’s all too easy to fixate on my little corner of the world.

This year it’s my hope that we will increase the number of children we sponsor. It doesn’t take much, actually. For $38 a month you can help a child and his family eat better and live better.

Check out Compassion International [4] as a way to reach outside the boundaries of your life.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in….
Matthew 25:35 [5]
