When We've Been Here...

When we've been here ten thousand years;
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise;
Than when we've first begun.

~ Verse 6, Amazing Grace, John Newton
This was an ordinary, yet not-so-ordinary week... as our family tried hard to get back to our normal wake-up times since returning from our missions immersion trip to the Philippines. By the way, we are still trying! :-)

#965 - #976 of grace-gifts... on these ordinary, yet beautiful God-given days!

~ His mercies, new every morning!
Compassion child, Jesus from Peru, now has a sponsor!
~ Visiting a friend who is sick.
~ Encouragement of seeing her grow in God.
~ Confirmation of our sponsorship of Compassion LDP student, Rochelle.
~ An opportunity to serve Him through a crisis pregnancy ministry!
~ Hubby and my girl becoming Volunteer Advocates for Compassion!
~ Movie night with the family.
~ A mall outing with my little nephews and nieces.
~ Helping and praying for a friend who is finalizing divorce papers.
~ This video... helping me to remember.
~ Fun Sunday afternoon at Buskerfest.

  2. Amiee, how old do you have to be to be an Advocate? My Alyssa is 14 I became an Advocate in June. Alyssa loves Compassion and helps me. She can just speak it and I get all tongue tied.

    So do they go through the training too?

    thanks for all you do.

    so thankful I found you,
    Teena

  3. Melanie: It's nice to meet you too! Glad you stopped by.

    Teena: So glad we found each other here in cyberspace!

    My Alyssa is also 14. She did have to study the material & do the phone interview with a Compassion Canada staff member. The only thing they didn't give her is her own Advocate URL. We are using/sharing mine. So, we are kind of one advocate unit... with three people in it (hubby too!).

    I'm not sure whether Compassion US has different rules?
