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!

Christmas and Compassion International

The Christmas season is here and as always we’re inundated with deals, sales, and the pressure of buying, buying, and buying. Let me begin by saying I get sucked into the pressure like everyone else! I want to find the perfect gifts for family and friends who probably already have more than what they need.

But I want more! No I’m not talking about material things. I want to DO more, GIVE more, and LOVE more. I want to make an eternal difference.

I have recently gotten involved with Compassion International. Compassion exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to sponsor a child. Here’s my sweet Jenifer that I sponsor. Jenifer is from Peru and I have the privilege of making a difference in her life.

I keep her picture on my refrigerator to remind me to pray for Jenifer daily.

I hope you know, I would not share a ministry with you that I did not feel was making a difference! Please read more about Compassion International here.

Jen from Beauty and Bedlam is a friend of mine who recently got to meet her sponsored child, you can read her story here. It will bless you!

To sponsor a child you only have to give $38 a month. I am more than willing to give up a new dress or blouse to sponsor Jenifer.

But I know for some of you sponsoring a child might not be feasible at this time. Money is tight and I undersand!

Compassion has a gift catalog where you can give a one time donation to a specific need. How cool is that? Instead of Black Friday, Cyber Monday,  it’s Giving Tuesday. I love it!

If you’ve been looking for a way you can give back this Christmas season, why not give to Compassion International. You CAN make an eternal difference in a child’s life!

Have you ever heard of Compassion International?

Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:40
