This is for Wendy Hernandez Leon I sponsored Wendy Hernandez Leon back in 2011 or 12 for a couple of years and was sad to lose the letters from her when the sponsorship stopped. I wanted to resume it later but she had already been picked up by another sponsor. Well done Compassion. Thank you Jesus, God, and Holy Spirit you will find satisfaction in sponsoring your child. The kingdom of heaven is made up of these. Apostle Will

My Compassion Sponsorship I have been sponsoring since 21014 ,starting with one child in India (whom I had to stop sponsoring when Compasion got kicked out of India) sadly and added one at a time until I got up to 5 (with a little help from one of my sisters). There are two frorm Peru, two from Ethiopia, and one from the Philippines. It's been very rewarding and also a bit of a struggle to make sure the money is in the bank for the withdrawal every month but I never had to stop sponsoring. It really has been a joy.

I applaude Compassion!! I have sponsored a little girl from Indonesia for a little over a year. I enjoy getting her updates and also enjoy writing her letters. I am thinking of sponsoring another child and would like to thank Compassion for giving me this opportunity.

Blessed By Sponsoring I've always put off sponsoring children due to financial issues. While at a Women of Joy conference I had the pleasure of speaking with the people from Compassion International. I looked at all of the children and felt a tug at my heart. I said to myself that I just didn't know if I could sponsor a child. Then, clear as day I heard the Lord tell me "I make all things possible". I chose a little girl to sponsor and then a few days later chose a little boy. So blessed!

Great opportunity to make a difference I starting sponsoring one child in 2014, and have since started sponsoring another. I find it has been a very positive experience. I love getting the letters from my sponsored children, and seeing their updated photos. Just to comment on some of the issues people have brought up, my children always acknowledge receiving extra gifts, and respond to the questions from my letters. Overall, it's a great opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child.

You should definitely sponsor a child I think that you should definitely sponsor a child because it is fun and it helps people who are in poverty. It's like meeting a new friend. I would sponsor 1,000 kids if I could. It is very important and fun to do. I love it and recommend it.

James 1:27 God used Compassion to change my view of giving upside down. I used to be cynical toward giving, but after seeing the change it's made in my sponsored child's life, and my own life, I am the biggest advocate for this. $38/month is a small sacrifice in order to give a child medical care, nutritious food, education, attention, and most importantly, the Gospel message. My wife and I sponsor multiple children and hope to add more. Thank you Compassion for the work you are doing.

Love this ministry Would definitely recommend this ministry to anybody! I have been sponsoring for a little over 3 years and in that time frame have never had any problems working with this ministry! They have always had a quick answer for any of the problems I needed answers for, and just speaking with them you can tell they absolutely love their job. I completely trust this ministry and commend them on the amazing job they are doing with these children across the globe!!

Very Good Overall. Compassion is a wonderful organization. The employees work very hard and the few I have spoken to were all very kind, helpful, and easy to communicate with. Writing to, and receiving letters from, my sponsor child has been relatively easy and straightforward . . . seeing as to the distance between us, and the language barriers / translation time. Compassion's site is also very easy to navigate.

Such a great Blessing I have been sponsoring four little girls from September 2015 and i have loved it with my whole heart. I pray for them in my rosary. Their letters and photos make my heart melt. Jesus has told us to feed the poor and to store our treasures in Heaven and not on earth, and i don't think there is any better way of doing this than helping these beautiful angels. I can assure you that you will be truly blessed by this.

Loving It Me and and my family are proud sponsors of three children. I remember when I was nine years old my family gave up Netflix to sponsors a boy named Kemberly. I have never regretted it once. The only trouble we had was some problems with the letters coming through.

A Blessing from God Over the past 12 years, Compassion has blessed us not only in our sponsorships, but through volunteer opportunities and updates from our children's worlds. The letter-writing is the best part, and being able to have a personal relationship with your child. Our daughter in the Philippines is our longest sponsorship at 12 years, and it has been a joy from God to watch her grow and flourish in His grace. Compassion is our heart!

You are LOVE to many. Compassion = 5 stars I'm so happy to give of what God's trusted me with; the bible says, more importantly, to the ones who cannot pay back. I believe the relationship built with the families are the most important things, much more than money. I recently visited the village in Ethiopia where myself and a few friends from church sponsor and to be there in person was such a blessing. It breaks my heart when people give up on this because of minor issues. PLEASE, never give up on a child who desperately needs you.

Great Program I have sponsored a boy in Rwanda for a year. I love how the relationship is blooming between us. I look forward to his letters just as he does mine. I do wish there was some way to tell if the extra funds, over the monthly $38.00, make it to the sponsored child. My childs mother thanked me 1 time and said she bought food with the extra gift but that is the only time they have acknowledged an extra gift. I do feel this is a great program and probably the best child sponsor charity there is.

Passionate about Compassion We sponsored our first girl four years ago from Indonesia, and then a boy a year later. We sponsored our third child, a 4 year old girl from Haiti, just four days ago. Our experiences have been rewarding and I find my relationship with God is closer since I'm in such continuous prayer for our children. Several people have mentioned their dissatisfaction with the automated letter writing. I find it rewarding to be able to get answers back quickly. I print off copies of our exchanged letters so I have the

I pray for Compassion I'm from Haiti and I can say this is accurate information about the Haiti children. I cried just looking and knowing how everyday they are going through so much and yet their strong and courageous, just like the Holy Bible says to be. Those kids are learning to love the Lord. I just want to say the Haitian children's have my prayer and love. Stay strong and continue on.

Limitless love It has been an amazing experience to see how much your $38 can do. I have 2 kids in Brazil. I learned as much about their home country, cities, economy and so on as I could to better understand their day-to-day life. It warms my heart when my girl tells me she prays every day or when my boy tells me his dream is to take me to the beach. It is awesome to see how they learn to write, paint or how they take the field trips with their churches. Remember, you give these kids a better tomorrow.

So ready to help I am a new sponsor and I am excited that my 8 years old daughter begins to share letters with the 8 years old girl in Peru that live in poverty. Although, we live in a decent status I would like my girl to get to know what others less fortunate wishes to have and become more humanitarian.

An amazing experience! I've been sponsoring my child from Uganda for 11 years now. What a wonderful kid! I can't tell you the pleasure I get when I receive a picture of him in his new clothes and shoes he's purchased with the little extra money I send him on a regular basis. He's also bought farm animals, a bicycle, books, and food. His cow just had a calf! I remember when he bought that cow. I received a picture of him holding it proudly. May God continue to bless me with this wonderful program!

We love Compassion! We have been blessed to sponsor children through Compassion for several years now. Compassion's ministry to the children and their families is amazing and beautiful. I love getting to know our kiddos through their letters and they enjoy getting our letters too. Thank you, Compassion for giving us avenues to help spread the Gospel and help children in need! God bless!

Compassion is a wonderful organization! Compassion is a wonderful organization that helps people in poverty around the world! We have three sponsored children. We are able to receive letters quickly from them and they are able to receive letters quickly from us because of the compassion site. The electronic translates the letter so the employees do not have to. We pray for them every night. We send them encouraging notes. I love Compassion so much!!!!!! I hope you will sponsor a child now!!!!!

Release a child from poverty! I totally love this program! I have sponsored two children through Compassion, and it has been an overall good experience! I love how personal it is to be able to write the children. I love receiving their letters! As a humanitarian I encourage anyone to sponsor a child! Poverty is a horrible and desperate situation that no one should have to grow up in. As a Christian, I encourage others to give a child hope, to give a child the blessing of sponsorship, to give them the light of Jesus.
