You Helped Change the Story for Many
Thank you to all of our incredible advocates across the country who supported the Change the Story tour this year. Your dedicated help and awe-inspiring passion have been vital in bringing in 3,335 new sponsors so far in 2013 (with one more stop to go)! The Compassion Experience can only share the story of poverty so we can change the stories of children because of you. The tour has seen huge success and you can rest assured that “your labor is not in vain” (1 Corin. 15:58). We’re so excited to see what the Lord will do in 2014!
