  • Take a Bite out of Malaria this Summer!

    Aug 18, 2014

    As a college student, I was blessed with the opportunity to serve on a mission team that spent 6 months in West Africa. It was an incredibly formative experience for me and ultimately led to my vocation with Compassion. My world was expanded in ways I could have never imagined. Some of those experiences bring a smile to my face decades later; others remind me of the challenges my brothers and sisters face to survive the sometimes threatening circumstances of everyday life.

  • Sing Over Us

    Jul 21, 2014

    “The Lord your God is in your midst—a Warrior bringing victory. He will create calm with His love; He will rejoice over you with singing.” This promise from Zephaniah 3:17 is what inspired Compassion advocate and songwriter, Caitlin Jane, to pen the lyrics to “Sing Over Us” while in the Dominican Republic. After meeting her sponsor child, Wanda, for the first time, Caitlin began to see in a whole new light how God Almighty sings over His beloved, precious children. The song and brand new music video celebrate a journey of hope, dreams, and the unique relationship between sponsor and child, built through letters and prayers. Caitlin Jane is passionate about using music to share Compassion’s ministry and travels to churches around the country doing just that. She will be leading worship at the upcoming Experience Compassion Conference in Pennsylvania on Saturday, September 6th. You can view the “Sing Over Us” music video and hear Caitlin share the story behind the song!
