How it continues to change us....

God has called us to be a people who spend our lives for the sake of His glory among the needy outside our gates ~ David Platt~Radical.

Our Alyssa started a blog this past weekend! It is called Crazy about Compassion. Stop by if you have a minute. She is so in love with Compassion....  

God is so amazing....

Also this past few days...  Alyssa's friend Claire who we shared about in the last post... started a blog too! Claire's blog is called All for Jesus.  Claire is also in love with Compassion.

I heard Alyssa on the phone today with Claire saying  "oh yes, I want to be an Advocate too...  I wonder how old we have to be?"  Don't you just love it.

Oh ....   and  Alyssa sent Compassion an email request for a correspondent child. Yesterday when Alyssa checked her account...  this beautiful sweet little girl was there!  She started screaming "I have one, I have one!"

I love seeing these girls be so passionate about releasing children from poverty.  About wanting to make a difference. I am so thankful Compassion is in my life...

Be changed forever ... sponsor a child today!


  1. Their blogs are precious - thanks for sharing them with us!

    It's really cool to see the new generation of sponsors (and someday advocates) that God is raising up.

  2. So, do you know how old you have to be?

  3. I'm not sure how old you actually have to be, but I'm sort of an advocate through my mom. She's an advocate, so we're kinda just a team. I got trained and everything. Hope this helps! :)

  4. I think you and Alyssa are my jr. Advocates, Claire! Love you.
