    Psalm 9:1
    I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart;
    I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.

    A new year is upon us and it’s a great time to look ahead with hope and anticipation of what will happen this year! We can’t wait to see how God is going to show up in your conversations as you share with others.

    But let’s not forget how much we have to celebrate from 2017!

    • 450 of you chose to Correspond and have written loving letters to children whose sponsors are unable
    • 2,000 of you were called to Pray and have regularly prayed for Compassion’s ministry around the world
