The Hands & Feet Of Christ

Follow the Compassion Bloggers in Nicaragua
This past week my sister has been in Nicaragua with Compassion International. I’m so happy that she had the opportunity to go on this trip but I have missed her (don’t tell her that) and I can’t wait to see her. She flys home today!

Traci was able to meet the child she sponsors through Compassion and his family. He is such a handsome young man!

The Hands & Feet Of Christ

She went to his home and as I looked at this picture, I noticed the dirt road they’re walking on to get to his home. It’s such a contrast to the paved road I drive on everyday to get to my house.

The Hands & Feet Of Christ

I’m so thankful for the ministry of Compassion International. By sponsoring a child we get to be the hands and feet of Christ. We can make a difference in a child’s life!

This is Jenifer, the child I sponsor in Peru. I keep this picture in my office and pray for that sweet face everyday. I recently got a letter from her with a picture she had drawn and I treasure it.

The Hands & Feet Of Christ

The words to this song say perfectly what we need to be doing. Here are the words to the chorus:

I will live
To carry Your compassion
To love a world that’s broken
To be Your hands and feet
I will give
With the life that I’ve been given
And go beyond religion
To see the world be changed
By the power of Your name

I don’t want to get to the end of my life and realize I didn’t make a difference in the power of His name. That’s why I want to be a part of Compassion International. That’s why I open my home to foreign exchange students.

Because Christ has made a difference in my life and I want to share it with the world!

Where is Christ calling you to be his hands and feet?

Have a blessed day!

    What a wonderful post. i “sponsor” the daughter of my friend who is a single mother going through a nightmare of helping to heal this child after being abused by the father and choosing to stay home with her under meager means, rather than to leave her and go to work. I do this in honor of my mother who i watched help a neighbor’s child who went to foster care by buying her beautful clothes so she could see beyond her Alopecia… It’s about walking the path, not just saying you believe!!!!

        I’ve been following Traci’s journey to Nicaragua too and it’s so great to see your post as well. We sponsor a child also and hope someday to meet him. We are all working for ” the kingdom” so God gets all the glory!! Thanks for sharing Cyndi. I’m sure you must miss Traci very much…. Glad she coming home soon :)
