My first experience with Compassion Intl. was when I was in highschool. Our family sponsored a young girl in Haiti. Now my relationship with them is more personal. It is my husband and I who are sponsoring our own child, Nikita. I can’t express how blessed I am to have her in our lives half a world away.
This week I’m following the Compassion Blog Trip to El Salvador. I’m reading the stories of five women and one man who are visiting, meeting, and getting down & dirty with the families and workers that are involved in the Compassion project down there. The only thing I can think to say is I’m so moved. I have to read these stories, watch the videos, look at the pictures taken when I’m at home and I can cry and not make a fool of myself. If you get a chance I recommend reading some of the blog posts. And if you don’t or even if you do pray about whether God would have you sponsor a child through Compassion. It is because of one of these Blog Trips that Shawn and I decided to sponsor Nikita.
Thank you to all the bloggers on the El Salvador trip. You are touching my life all the way here in Arizona.
