A home destroyed and a little boy’s hope

There’s only one thing left untouched in Christian’s home: A single wooden beam stands with a nail in it. Christian’s school medals hang proudly from the nail, just as he left them. While his medals somehow defied Typhoon Haiyan’s rage on November 8th, the rest of this 9-year-old’s home was blown to pieces. His wooden […]

Drawn closer to Jesus

A few times a year, I get an email asking if I’m interested in speaking at a men’s meeting or preaching at a church on a Sunday morning. It’s a great privilege and one I take very seriously, especially when I’m asked to talk about Compassion’s ministry. I’ve learned a lot through my experiences to date, but I picked up on this fairly […]

Finding true love in a place of war

It’s my first time on African soil, but I feel strangely at home. Maybe it’s because home is where the heart is, and part of my heart is etched here in pen and ink. I’ve been writing to my sponsored child in Uganda for the last five years, and I’m eager to experience a piece […]

But the types of problems girls face are sometimes quite different from boys. One of the largest challenges girls face is early pregnancy. In many of the communities where we minister, girls have their first […]

The children in Compassion’s sponsorship program face a lot of problems that are hard to imagine—things like abuse, pressure to drop out of school, and pressure to give up on their future. There are some challenges that are especially a threat for boys. Despite the great diversity in the daily lives of boys living in […]

Sandiele: from student to teacher

It’s no surprise that Sandiele grew up to be an English teacher. In 2006 she said she wanted to be a teacher, probably English, because she was fascinated with a world beyond her own. Sandiele’s curiosity with other cultures was nurtured by Compassion, and the teachers at her project made an impact on her. Sandiele […]
