I Can’t Stand It

The first day’s posts are up from the Compassion Bloggers in the Dominican Republic, and their words are so touching and inspiring that I just have to link to them individually.

If you’re not currently involved with Compassion, please consider becoming a sponsor and releasing a child from poverty. This is not a symbolic sponsorship. It’s a direct, one-to-one relationship – and it’s life-changing. I can’t say it enough so I’ll say it again: LIFE-CHANGING.

  1. I couldn’t stand it, either. I had to blog about it.

  2. We got an updated picture from one of our Compassion children in Rwanda on Saturday…and Sophie his expression looked so sad. It made me want to fix it so badly! I began to pray even more fervently. Indeed, he is in an AIDS infected environment and I’m sure that he’s seen more than I could even imagine.

    And I’m praying for your friends…and for you.

  3. Thank you for the full-on introduction to Compassion & the work they do. We can feel your passion for this and it is pure love. Thank you for sharing. I’ll do my part to spread the word and WHO knows what else…

  4. Please don’t feel bad about blogging about this every day if you want to. It’s your blog and a cause that is near and dear to your heart!!

  5. Here’s a great idea for your readers: Give a full year of Compassion sponsorship as a Christmas gift to someone you love.

    My hubby did that one year for me, and it remains THE. BEST. PRESENT. HE. EVER. EVER. EVER gave me for all of our Christmases ever.

  6. You are definitely here in spirit — not just on your side, but over here. Your ears should be burning (in the best way possible of course).

    It’s a wonderful wonderful thing. Today I was loved on and climbed on and pulled on more than I ever have been in my life, and I loved every moment of it.
