When you decided to sponsor a child with Compassion, what was it that inspired you to choose a child from India? Was it the knowledge of the desperate poverty found there? Was it the beautiful and unique culture? At present, it is estimated that well over 1 billion people live in India. While much of the country rejects the notion of a caste system, the reality is that millions of children and adults know only how powerless and hopeless they feel because of abject poverty. Compassion partners with hundreds of Evangelical churches to release these people from poverty in Jesus’ name. This trip is an opportunity for you to join a team of fellow believers from across the United States. Together we will experience the beauty of this culture and provide encouragement to the men and women serving the next generation of leaders in India. I encourage you to ask the Lord if He wants you to be part of this team, then step out in obedience and register today. I promise you will not regret it. See you there!
