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.

Beautiful Children I have enjoyed interacting with the children I sponsor through Compassion International. It is a joy to receive each letter from them. I was priviledged to see some of them face to face during Compassion Trips. It was wonderful to meet them and share God's love with them. It is hard to explain the joy of meeting someone in person who you only "knew" through letters. I would highly recommend Compassion. I feel like my sponsor children encourage me as much as I do them. To God be the Glory!

One of my greatest joys I've been a Compassion sponsor, volunteer, and advocate since 2012 and I love being a part of the ministry. I've visited one of my four children twice and I get to see firsthand how my sponsorship benefits him. Receiving letters from my babies is the best mail I ever get! I have enjoyed watching them grow in stature, maturity and in Christ over the years. I recommend child sponsorship through Compassion to as many people as I can. It's truly a blessing on both sides.

3 reasons I participate. There are basically three reasons that my wife and I participate in sponsoring a Child. 1.Cause I can. 2.Cause I want to. Most important 3. because I get to. What I can give makes a very large difference. I have watched a Child grow up and I got to be a part of something more wonderful than I ever could imagine. Yes, it's cause I get to.

Be a Light to Children in Poverty I highly recommend Compassion International. I sponsor a child from the Dominican Republic. I believe that Compassion International's heart is in the right place. I love their mission of freeing children from poverty by providing them with food, shelter, education, and Christ's love. It is exciting to know that you can be a part of their mission in a small yet very real way.

Wonderful Organization! I have sponsored a child in Ethiopia for almost 13 yrs now, from the time he entered the program. He is getting ready to graduate the program soon. I am so proud of all that Compassion does and would highly recommend this organization. Once he graduates I know that we will continue sponsoring a new child because the work that they do matters.

Greatest Investment Ever I count the small investment of time, energy and money I've made toward the beautiful children I've met in Compassion's child sponsorship program as one of my best investments ever. To participate in a child's life in ways that benefit them, their family and their community is an incredible blessing to all parties involved. The children receive sustenance, education, encouragement and gifts. The sponsor receives encouraging letters, opportunities to pray and encourage and a grateful heart.

Sponsorship is an wonderful blessing Compassion does whatever they can to help children. When my sponsored child's estranged father reentered the family and beat her mother, Compassion aided immediately with counseling and regular therapy session for the physical abuse suffered by the mother. When India broke away from all NGOs, Compassion worked endlessly to try and retain presence there knowing all too well, their work is of the utmost importance. Writing the children is a wonderful and profound experience.

A Compassionate Heart I am sponsoring a child in Asia. I love being able to write letters back and forth, to check up on her and make sure she is okay. I love knowing that I am able to help someone so easily, when they are in dire need. The Compassion Experience opened my eyes to the realities of third world countries and what we can do for them. Thank you for opening my eyes and my heart.

Matthew 25:40 It is a blessing to have a place that can be trusted to get help to those in need. Along with knowing children and families are helped, it also gives Christian sponsors the opportunity to make a difference and for us to do unto the Lord. Matthew 25:40 "And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." --Jesus Christ

We couldnt be more excited!! We heard about Compassion on our local radio station and went to the website and instantly fell in love with Sami! We knew right away he was the one the Lord wanted us to sponsor! We are already planning a trip to meet him. We are so excited for this opportunity to make a difference and spread the love of Jesus and our love to Sami.

My favorite charity I have been sponsoring a child since 1988, shortly after I graduated from high school. I have sponsored countless children since then and I could not be happier! Compassion has always been very financially responsible and they truly do have a heart for all of these kids. In the 1990s I sponsored a child in Africa who was lost in the Zaire war and I thought he was dead until he contacted me a couple of years ago on Facebook! He said he was fine and told me of what a difference my sponsorship made.

I believe in the mission I have seen and heard firsthand stories that Compassion programs changes lives. I highly recommend and urge all Christians to pray about sponsoring a child (or better yet, multiple children!). The children need us, and quite frankly, I have been just as changed and blessed by the children.

It's all about helping the children! I currently sponsor 4 kids & started in Dec 2009. I really like the connection with & communication from the kids. In the past few years I have had problems receiving letters & gift acknowledgements. Some Centers do not stay on top of sending initial get acquainted letters, letter writing & gift receipts. The issues with upgrades to their system in Colorado have REALLY slowed down the process too. I am thinking about stopping my sponsorships due to these & other issues. I am praying about it!

My blessings! I have been very blessed to pour out love to children through Compassion and meet one sponsored child in person. What a blessing all of my children have been to me. The special blessing is when you realize they have finally realized they are special and loved, because it is easy for them to believe they are not. I write to them knowing they may not be able to return what I expect in words, but eventually (and it can take years) they do. Oh the joy they bring!

Very Nice Compassion's child sponsorship program is a great way to help others, and take action. This program allows us to show the love of Jesus to others.

Well Pleased We recently sent a gift to our child in Ecuador through the birthday fund. Shortly after her birthday she wrote and thanked us and was excited to tell us about the new clothes and shoes she was able to get because of the gift. Imagine a child excited to get clothes for their birthday. What more needs said?
