#94 - Compassion

I love the ministry of Compassion International.

It would have been enough to just have been a sponsor for the past 16 years.

But 14 years ago, God called me to be an advocate as well...to take my commitment one step further.

And that would have been enough, too.

But 10 months ago, God called me to become an Area Coordinator...to take a step towards leadership.

And the journey has been so amazing and so fulfilling. I feel so complete - like I am doing what God created me to do. Thank you, Lord.

I just had another round of training this weekend. This was training I have already gone through, but I was able to absorb it at a new level...with fellow advocates.

And the highlight...I got to meet and talk to a formerly sponsored child, Alex Mutagubya. He, his wife and 7 month old daughter are living here in the states, attending seminary. What an honor and privilege to meet someone who personally experienced the life-changing effects of Compassion's ministry.

I am so thankful that I get to partner with God in this awesome ministry.
