Compassion Advocate E-News November 2013 – Compassion International

November 2013 Advocate E-News
Pray for the Philippines

This month's edition of the E-News was completed just prior to the devastating typhoon that struck the Philippines. Please keep the people of the Philippines and particularly our Compassion staff, volunteers, implementing church partners, students, children, mothers and babies in our ministry in your continued prayers. We are preparing resources for you as an advocate to use to promote awareness of the impact of the typhoon and provide opportunities for people to contribute to Compassion's relief efforts. Watch your inboxes for details and downloadable resources to engage your friends, family, co-workers, social networks and church community. We appreciate all that you have already done.
