Sharing God’s Love This Christmas

Meet David, Agnes and Sofie. Each lives in a different region with a different culture, but they are all experiencing the love of Jesus this Christmas season. Click on each picture to read more about how they celebrate Jesus’ birth and the Christmas season.

This year, 1.8 million children in Compassion centers around the world will participate in Christmas celebrations. They will hear stories about Jesus’ birth, sing Christmas songs and each will receive a special Christmas gift.

This Christmas, join us in praying that children in poverty:
  • know they are loved by God
  • are healthy and happy
  • find hope during this special season
  • share their love and joy with one another
  • enjoy the Christmas celebrations at their child development centers
  • encourage their families and friends to learn more about Jesus
"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given…" – Isaiah 9:6
