Poverty speaks to a child. It tells them, “You don’t matter, you are nothing. Life will always be this way.” But more powerful than the lies of poverty are the hope of Jesus, the care of their local church and the encouragement of a sponsor. Sponsor a Village with Compassion, and as you sponsor a child you begin a relationship more powerful than poverty.
Earlier this year Mel & Jeziel visited the Lucena City village in The Philipines. They experienced what life is really like in a place where the average family income is $50 Australian dollars a month. Mel & Jeziel met the poverty-stricken families whose lives will be totally transformed this week after their children are sponsored. This week you’ll be hearing stories of how God is already and will continue to work through different people to transform this village.
This Thursday, the 21st of March we are partnering with Compassion and you family. To come alongside The Lucena City village (The Philipines) to provide a hope more powerful than poverty and find sponsors for 100 children.
Through child sponsorship, you have the unique opportunity to invest into the life of a child. Your role in their life is vital. Not only will you support their long-term development. Your words of encouragement through letter-writing will be a source of hope and confidence for years to come. It’s a relationship that has an eternal impact and is more powerful than poverty.
The 100 children that will be sponsored will attend the Bethel Bible Community Child Development Center in Lucena City. Read about what this community is like here.
