Partner Churches

My next observation from the Haiti trip is this:

8.  I’m really proud of our partner churches.  Can you imagine caring for over 400 children every week — providing food, shelter when needed, health care, education, family support and discipleship?  I’m so impressed with their dedication, perseverance, patience and endurance!  I’m especially touched by the deep faith and trust I see in these people.  They don’t know when the next crisis is going to appear, or when the next desperate family is going to show up on their doorsteps.  They just give and give, trusting that the support is going to come from churches that partner with Compassion.  When we’re busy giving indulgent gifts to our children for Christmas, they are busy handing out rice, a helping hand, a smile to the most destitute.  I am so thankful for our church partners, both here and abroad.  We can only do this type of service together.

Here are some more great photos from our partner churches:
