When I set my 2012 goals for this year... one goal was to work three Compassion events in 2012. I was notified that a concert was in a nearby town. I was really excited and nervous too. Alyssa went with me. I didn't think they would allow her to work the table because she is only 14.
When we arrived the line was wrapped around the building.... and people were still coming! Over 1000 people. It was a gospel sing. Not the music we listen to but that doesn't matter. The Compassion man who was there was excited to see us. He was great. He told us what to do. Alyssa didn't help behind the table but he did let us both do a packet pass. It was exciting and sobering at the time as so are not interested.
Seven children were sponsored! It was a great experience. We were both able to share and Alyssa brought pics of her sponsored children so she showed those to several who came up to look.
I am excited that God allowed me the gift of being a part of this event. Todd (Compassion guy) was very helpful and encouraging!
It was a small number of children sponsored but to those seven children it was the world!
Make a difference forever~ sponsor a child today!
