Tuesdays Unwrapped: Giving Hope

One of the grace-gifts I listed yesterday on my Multitudes on Mondays post was this:
:: Another Compassion child sponsored!
Our family's journey of sponsoring a child with and advocating for Compassion International has truly been a life-changing experience! It has brought us to places we never dreamed we'd go... broken our hearts for things we never thought we'd care about... grown us in a way that we never thought was even possible!

To paraphrase Ann Voskamp, from her book One Thousand Gifts...

God is truly always good...
And, we are truly always loved!

God, in His grace... has brought about, through our family's advocacy... the sponsorship of 10 Compassion children in just 5 short months... truly beyond my wildest dreams... more than all we ask or imagine!

10 more children released from poverty in Jesus' name!

Today... would YOU add just one more to that total and give just one more child HOPE this Christmas season?

Let me introduce you to Lourence. He is 8 years old and lives in the coastal community of Poblacion (southeast of Dipolog City, Philippines). Most adults in Poblacion work as subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $100 per month.

Here is Lourence!

Wouldn't it be great for Lourence to find out at Christmas that he has been sponsored? You can make that happen! Lourence is waiting to call you "friend"!

If you are interested to sponsor Lourence, please contact me and I will promptly get his child pack off to you!!!

*Thank YOU* so much for loving on children who live in extreme poverty... you are a channel of God's love to a hurting and needy world.

Unwrapping more of His love in this world.
Act justly.  Love mercy.  Walk humbly with God!


  1. Visiting from Tuesdays Unwrapped...

    Absolutely awesome!

    Thank you for your sensitivity, sacrifice and commitment. What an inspiration...

    Merry Christmas...

  2. So happy for you! I pray that we are able to sponsor more someday. My husband is not totally on board. One of the things I am praying for is that each one of my children will sponsor. Michael (his wife Amber) do, Mandi does, Alyssa does. We keep hoping Dakota (18) will. Then when my two youngest get older I hope they do!

    Thanks for always encouraging. I love reading here!
