Compassion – from the cradle to college, one child at a time, in Jesus’ name.

Van Patsy / from Patsy: 
The countdown has begun!! Or as the Dutch say, ‘nog maar 6 nachtjes slapen’. I am so looking forward to this trip! Many of my collegues here at Compassion travel on a regular basis and I love to hear their stories. Stories of poverty laced with hope because of the love the project workers have for God and the children in their care. I am very excited about meeting my sponsor children, Grace and Faraja. The contact with all of my sponsor children is very special, but these two girls are something else! They both love music and Jesus and (like others) are very thankful to be a part of Compassion’s family. Almost every letter is accompanied by a new picture, drawing or report card to keep me up to date on their progress both at home and in school. Not only am I looking forward to seeing them (and visiting Grace’s project), I am also looking forward to seeing and hearing first hand the difference that Compassion makes in the lives of each child and family. I expect to feel just about every emotion imaginable, and look forward to getting to know the other members of the group and hearing how they experience the tour and the meeting with their sponsor child(ren). Our adventure begins in…nog maar 6 nachtjes slapen.
