Featured Recipe

Try this sweet and tangy pineapple cookie from Southeast Asia called nastar. Nastar is believed to have originated from the Chinese community in Indonesia, as the recipe and technique are similar to that of Chinese pineapple cakes. However, the Indonesian version has been adapted to incorporate local flavors and ingredients. They are filled with spiced pineapple jam and are popular for their melt-in-the-mouth texture. Families in Indonesia, Bangledesh and Sri Lanka often serve these delicious pineapple balls on holidays and special occasions.


Pray for People in These Countries Facing Disaster

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has been facing an economic crisis since the pandemic. Many families can't afford basic goods, and recent policy changes and importation challenges are causing a severe resource shortage. Pray that families would be able to find and afford food, medicine and fuel.

Sri Lanka

The worsening economic crisis is putting children at greater risk of abuse, neglect and exploitation. Pray that the situation in Sri Lanka improves and that God will protect children there.

To date, 54 Compassion-assisted families and four child development centers were damaged. Pray for speedy recovery and for the resources needed to repair damaged infrastructure.
