Beauty For Ashes

When you walk through these streets, you can't help but feel despair and hopelessness.

But inside the doors of the church where Compassion works, there is reason to celebrate and dance. The church is a place of beauty, joy and hope and Jesus shines through these children. bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of morning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
- Isaiah 61:3

Father, I praise you for the work you are doing even in the most dire circumstances. I witnessed pure devotion to you while in this place. Thank you for showing yourself to me through these children. Thank you for choosing me to partner with you in Compassion's ministry.
