What scripture is speaking to you lately? “We have come to know [by personal observation and experience], and have believed [with deep, consistent faith] the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides continually in him. In this [union and fellowship with Him], love is completed and perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him]; because as He is, so are we in this world.” – 1 John 4:16-17 (AMP)

In 30 words or less, what’s your top Compassion moment? One of my most memorable Compassion Canada memories was meeting my sponsor child in Tanzania. Something changes when you have the opportunity to meet your sponsor child face-to-face! Your relationship becomes that much more real and tangible after meeting—I highly recommend it (when travel opens up again!).
