September 2013 Advocate E-News
Join the Celebration Via Live Stream join-the-celebration

We are so excited that many of you will be present in Colorado Springs Saturday evening to celebrate as we honor Dr. Wess Stafford as he retires from 36 years of service with Compassion and introduces Santiago “Jimmy” Mellado as he accepts the mantle of leadership from Wess to serve as Compassion’s next President and CEO. We realize it is simply not feasible for everyone to be present, so the evening celebration will be streamed live online for you to "attend" from the comfort of where you are. The celebration takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. Mountain Time on Saturday, Sept. 14.

After the event takes place a recording will be available on the online.

Volunteer Opportunity at MOPS Convention

Compassion has a unique opportunity to connect with young moms this October at the annual Moms of Preschoolers (MOPS) Convention, MomCon 2013, in Kansas City, MO.

We have created family-oriented resources to come alongside moms and dads as they help their children see the world through God's eyes. In addition to our ongoing resources such as Explorer Magazine and Quest for Compassion, we will provide a special mini Gift Catalog with a complimentary family activity guide. Would you like an opportunity to connect with these young moms and share all that Compassion has to offer their families? We are looking for volunteers to serve at our booth October 17-19, 2013. Please email Jill DeRaad if you are interested!

You can access the advocate volunteer slots for the MOPS convention by doing an event search through My Account.
