Leave Your Mark…Sponsor a Child

We’ve talked for 3 weeks at Suncrest about “Leaving your Mark”.  We will culminate it this week talking about the overwhelming message of Scripture to help the poor with generosity.  I won’t preach the whole sermon here, but I do want to give you the heads up about a great opportunity.

I shared this article on Facebook yesterday that highlighted a rigorous study of what work among the impoverished is making the most impact.  You should read the whole article, but Compassion was highlighted as was the larger concept of Child Sponsorship.  The line that caught me said, “”Of all the long-term development interventions, child sponsorship received the highest rating.”  This short video gives a great picture of the difference they make.

So, this Sunday your family will have the chance to begin sponsoring a child through Compassion.  We have a young man with us this week at Suncrest who was a sponsored child and I’m excited to have him tell his story.

  1. I’m really glad you chose Compassion. From my understandsay 100% of where they go they incorporate the gospel in what they do which other organizations like them can’t say. I have a child from Togo through Compassion that I have been sponsoring for over a year. I love it. This is a great way to help God make a huge difference in one persons life.

  2. Very interesting subject , thanks for posting.
