Nicole was looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of children in poverty in a new and powerful way. So when her pastor said someone could host a Compassion Sunday event at her church, Nicole stepped up to lead it.
“I’m usually a person who says, ‘It doesn’t hurt to just try and see how it goes,’” says Nicole.
It was during the height of the pandemic, when the repercussions of COVID-19 were beginning to push more and more people into poverty around the world.
“I felt this event was a good opportunity to DO something in the midst of this crazy pandemic, to help those who need help the most right now and to encourage our church to join the effort,” Nicole says.
She wasn’t alone in standing up in front of her church. Her 6-year-old daughter, Noelle, joined her in hosting the event. Together they prayed, planned and shared their heart for children in poverty.
Their prayers were answered in a big way. At their Compassion Sunday event and in the weeks after, Nicole and Noelle were able to connect 23 children with new sponsors!
Nicole and Noelle brought hope into the world during an especially difficult time in history.
