Our desire is to help other life-changing ministries through praying for them, giving financially to their ministries and telling others about the effectiveness of their ministry in helping impoverished individuals around the world. In the case of Compassion International, we are genuinely passionate about their compassionate commitment to help children in need.

Helping a child can be done in many different ways at many different commitment levels. God has called each of us to serve the needs of those who cannot do for themselves, especially orphans and widows. One such ministry, whom we have the greatest respect for, is Compassion International which helps children around the world. Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.

WHAT IS COMPASSION?
Compassion means “to suffer with” and is an emotional response of sympathy. But it’s not just a feeling. The feeling is combined with a desire to help. Because we have compassion, we want to take action and help the person who is suffering. Notice the last word of the definition above — “with.” We are called to suffer with someone, to suffer together. This is what differentiates compassion from empathy.
WHO IS COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL?
Compassion International is a child advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult.
Compassion's work has grown from modest beginnings in South Korea in 1952 when American evangelist Rev. Everett Swanson felt compelled to help 35 children orphaned by the Korean conflict. Today it is a worldwide ministry where millions of children are now reaping the benefits of one man's clear, God-given vision.
