Kindle the flame…
What do you love about volunteering with Compassion? How did you get started? How have you been sharing your sponsorship story? We know that when you share how your special Compassion child/ren joined your family, others have a natural curiosity and it opens the door for you to introduce a waiting child to their future sponsor!
SPARK of SEEING
It’s been said throughout the years that one of the best investments you can make in your role, as a volunteer and as a sponsor, is to visit Compassion’s ministry in the field. Seeing the local church in action, hearing from pastors and leaders, meeting the children and their families, and actually witnessing firsthand what an impact sponsorship is making! There’s nothing that can compete with being there in person. A whole new depth of understanding and appreciation comes alive!
Would you consider traveling with us this coming year to keep that fire alive in your heart?
Upcoming trips for 2018 are: Colombia in January, Nicaragua in April, El Salvador in July and Ghana in September (email our Field Experience team for more information).
