God Doesn't Blink

A Girl who is Wise Beyond Her Years

When Jessie was diagnosed with cancer at age 15, she became a spokesperson for how God can use one life to impact countless people.

Her family was awe-struck with her strength and one day asked her how she was feeling. She responded, "God doesn’t blink." Her understanding of God's sovereignty and plan for her life was wise beyond her years.



To honor Jessie's life, her parents and Compassion International joined together to provide water for countless families in the Dominican Republic.

Do you believe that God doesn’t blink? Do you believe He is in control and can use you to provide hope to hurting people?

Start Sponsoring a Child Today!

Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.

Your support provides:

  • Medical checkups, which often save lives
  • Nutritious food
  • Health and hygiene training
  • Educational assistance
  • Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief
  • Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children
  • Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God. Just imagine how exciting it will be when one day you get to heaven and your sponsored child is there with you because you chose to sponsor him or her.

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 10 days.

When children find out they've been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.
