Last Sunday, our church hosted a Compassion Sunday service. Afterwards, my family and I had the honor to walk through The Compassion Experience (it was set up in our church parking lot). An interactive, immersive display which allows you to step into the life of a child who had suffered under the crippling weight of poverty. From hardship to hope, we saw the transformation of Kiwi and Jonathan's story with the support from Compassion and the life-giving relationship with a sponsor. With God tugging at our hearts and tear ducts, we joined a partnership with our church and the country of Haiti to sponsor a little boy named Michelton.
A member of our church is partnering up with Compassion in Haiti to build a church and an orphanage. The blue sticker on Michelton's paperwork means he lives close to the orphanage and will be affiliated with our church. Very exciting!
Proverbs 19:17 NIV Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done.
