The Value of a Visit
Through your support and letters, you have built a special connection with your child. Now, standing in your sponsored child’s home and meeting the family (and maybe their goats, too), the things you’ve read about in your child’s letters come to life. From now on, when you pray for your child and the family, their faces will be vivid in your mind’s eye.
This is the value of a Custom Visit. And there is an even greater value for your sponsored child.
When you chose your sponsored child, you sent a powerful message: "You matter." A personal visit from you turns up the volume on that message! The time and effort you took to travel around the globe just to meet your child shouts, "You’re worth it!"
That’s a message that can transform a child living in poverty. It can be the inspiration to get through tough times, to stay in school, and to see hope in the future. It can even help a child realize that her Heavenly Father also knows her name… and has gone to even greater lengths to reach her.
Even if you don't have a sponsored child in the country where you'll be traveling, you can still experience the joy of seeing Compassion's ministry in action by visiting a Compassion Child Development Center
