It's Official... I am now a Compassion Advocate & Here's a Give Away for you!

.....  I am very excited but also very scared. I keep asking myself ... How can I do this? I know that "I" can't  only God can.  I know that it is God who will touch people to sponsor a child....  but I have two child packets wating to be sponsored. Waiting for their lives to be forever changed. How do I just trust and not worry?  

Compassion International  is a child sponsorship organization that releases children from poverty in Jesus name.... and so much more.  The integrity of Compassion is amazing. I am still learning...  what I have learned in the last few weeks through interviews and paperwork is so incredible. I am honored to speak out on behalf of the children....   I am honored to be a part of the Advocate Network. I am so thankful for the Advocates who have encouraged and helped me along the way...  and continue to help me!

Please enter my first giveway...   here are the ways to enter. You can enter multiple times. Just leave separate comment. My little boys will draw a name on the 27th. I can't wait to hear from you!

1. just leave a comment
2. if you sponsor a child from Compassion please let me know.
3. if you do not sponsor a child from Compassion but hope to in the future.
4. if you would like to sponsor one of the children that I have a packet for.. you will receive 5 entries for       that! How awesome that would be! share if Compassion International is new to you.

 In the area we live... not many know about Compassion International. I would love for you to share...  it will encourage me as I share to lots who have never heard of Compassion International.

This book will encourage you to turn your good, loving intentions into strategic actions and empower you to help change the world–and the future–forever: one child at a time.

Please pray for me... as I start this journey.  I will end with some of what I read today in my Compassion training stuff....

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. Prov. 31:8-9
