So you might have noticed the little "I blog for Compassion" button over there on the right side bar. Its a recent addition to the blog, although I've posted a few times over the years about our involvement with Compassion International. By signing up, I basically volunteered to write about prompts that will be emailed out.
So this is the first "officially prompted" Compassion International post! Fun, huh?
Even more fun is that the prompt was basically to read about the Photo Scavenger Hunt that Compassion International is hosting for the remainder of the month of July. Read here to find out all about it. You can totally join in on the fun.
Its a way to celebrate their two year mark on instagram. I wanted to wait to participate until Wilson and Walker got back from Camp Barbie. I think they will have fun searching for the items to photograph with me. Of course, one of the items was easy enough for me to just turn and snap right here.
Oh, and did I mention there are prizes? You know me with prizes, right? Check them out! Giddy. I tell you.
We love the work that Compassion International is doing around the world. It is an honor to play a small part in their bigger work. By supporting a child, we are helping to keep his birth family intact. I know its hard to imagine from the comforts of North America, but the depth of poverty in some parts of the world is a major factor in the orphan crisis. Compassion International does an outstanding job of releasing children from poverty in Jesus' name! They take a holistic approach and the benefits that children in their programs receive end up helping their entire family to some extent. Their approach has even been researched by a third party with outstanding results... read more here.
I could go on and on. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I believe with all my heart that Compassion is in the business of orphan-prevention. It is a critical piece to the larger Orphan Care movement.
