The gift of sponsorship

  • "I believe that God chooses a sponsor for each child; when a sponsor chooses a particular child that is just an exercise of obedience to His still small voice."

    - Neal Beard, Sponsor

  • "Compassion gives hope to parents or single mothers so they don’t have to make the difficult choice to hand their children over to an orphanage just so that they could get an education and food. Compassion IS orphan prevention. While there is breath in my lungs, Compassion is the song my heart will sing."

    - Lacey Tough Maloney, Sponsor

  • "Compassion has helped me to realize that I can help to make the difference in the life of a child growing up in extreme poverty. Our prayers for these kids and our letters show them the love of Jesus across many miles that someone does really care for them."

    - Yvonne Renolds, Sponsor
