On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry. And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. And he said to […]

An eternal difference

Story and photos by Richard Pouteaux. From the time I was a little child, I watched the shows on TV that depicted children in need around the world. I realized that even though it might just be one child’s life, I could have an influence. Jesus had sown a seed in my heart. In 2004, I […]

Show and Tell

When I was in kindergarten, one of my favourite days was show-and-tell day. I’d get to bring in a toy (like my Super-Grover from Sesame Street) and tell my classmates all about why it was so awesome.

“Why do you have to talk about Jesus?”

“Why do you guys have to talk about Jesus—can’t you just help people?” I sat silently for a moment to collect my thoughts with my wife’s uncle Steve just across the table, his frustration evident. I’d recently joined Compassion’s staff and had just explained how our ministry works. Steve didn’t like what he’d heard. I […]
