Merry Christmas from Compassion

As we prepare for Christmas in the United States, kids all over the world are preparing to celebrate Christmas with their Compassion family, some for the very first time. From Africa to Asia and across the Americas, local traditions may vary but some things remain the same.

Every Compassion-assisted child will experience the excitement of opening a gift and celebrating with her friends this Christmas. And every child will have the opportunity to hear the story of Jesus—God come to earth.

As children gather together to sing, play games, join in nativity plays and share a special meal together, more than 1.4 million Compassion-assisted children around the world will know that God created them and loves them, and that he was born into this world for them.

And this Christmas, we rejoice with the 125,042 children in Compassion’s programs who accepted Christ this year! That is the true reason we celebrate this season! From our Compassion family all over the world, we wish you a wonderful Christmas!
