Sponsor a child today!
August 15, 2011
One of the purposes of His Little Feet is to equip people like you and me to practically respond to the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children worldwide.
Our goal is to do this by presenting the “(be in on it.)” campaign, which offers four tangible ways people can become involved in orphan care. Those four ways are to:
Give to His Little Feet
Sponsor a child through Compassion International
Go on a mission trip through Visiting Orphans
Adopt through America World Adoption
Each of these is an amazing way to respond to God’s call to care for the orphan. We believe that every person – no matter the age or stage of life – can make a huge difference in a child’s life.
Today we focus on Child Sponsorship – a powerful and yet simple way to impact the life of a child.
His Little Feet is blessed to work in conjunction with Compassion International, a Christian child advocacy ministry that works to release children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty. What makes Compassion International’s child development program unique is that it is Christ centered, child focused, church based and committed to integrity.
Compassion believes in a holistic child development model that equips children with the knowledge, skills and opportunity needed to function as independent, Christian adults. Today, over 1.2 million children in 26 countries are cared for through Compassion.
One of the unique features of Compassion’s sponsorship model is that they believe in a one sponsor-one child design, which allows for a strong connection and personal relationship that goes far beyond financial support.
Through monthly gifts, prayer and letter writing, Compassion encourages sponsors to directly invest in a child’s life. For $38 a month, the organization is able to provide a child in need with:
• Ongoing Christian training
• Educational opportunities
• Treatment and training to maintain child health
• Development of self-confidence and social skills
• Key life skills and vocational programs
Thanks to people like you, over 600 children were sponsored through Compassion International during the 2010-2011 His Little Feet children’s choir tour!
This means that hundreds of children in need in over a dozen countries around the world have been positively impacted forever thanks to the commitment of individuals thousands of miles away.
If you currently sponsor a child, that’s great! We encourage you to take another step by sharing this blog with 5 of your friends….encourage them to consider sponsoring a child today!
If you are not currently sponsoring a child, please consider starting today! What an incredible, tangible opportunity to “(be in on it.)” when it comes to sharing Christ’s love with orphaned and vulnerable children worldwide.
“And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward.” – Matthew 10:42
