Four Alumni

This is a great video from Compassion International–detailing true stories of four formerly sponsored children.   Here you can see how very important it is to help unsponsored children such as these kids here.

From Poverty to Pastor

Here is another excellent story from Compassion. Some of our sponsored children aspire to be pastors like the one that has helped them in their own Child Development Center. This is true of my sponsored boy in Kenya — Muuo — and I really hope he accomplishes his goal. It’s been on his heart for many years; his brother is a pastor already and now he wants to do the same. Please enjoy this video about a formerly sponsored child that is now a pastor, and who has a huge impact on many children today.

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty

This film features what a difference vocational training makes for our sponsored children. This includes a variety of skills — plumbing, carpentry, cooking, sewing, welding, auto mechanics and technology — to name a few. Please enjoy hearing the wonderful story shared here.

The Least of These

Here is a new video from Compassion featuring four formerly sponsored children.  I met one of them — David — in Colorado Springs last year, and also met Olive earlier.  They’re certainly impressive in what they have already accomplished in their young lives. I’m sure you’ll find their stories to be very moving and powerful in many ways.

For the Children

Our guide in Costa Rica took us to a banana plantation, which was very impressive to see.  We were not allowed to take photos of many of the areas, but we took those that we could.

My favorite moment was when Oscar asked to take some bananas to the  children in poverty at his church.  I loved this, and we willingly helped carry them to the trunk of his car.

Then we had another beautiful drive along the beach!

Sponsors: Nick Vujicic

Here is another compelling visit of a Compassion sponsor — Nick Vujicic.  In this film he visits a child in Colombia (not his own sponsored child, but one with a story of hardship).  You will not soon forget this video!

Sponsors: Jon Bauer

Here is another featured Compassion sponsor — Jon Bauer.  He’s a musician who enjoys supporting a child in El Salvador.  Take a look at his visit with his child:
