I don't say any of this to appear wise or cause anyone to feel guilt. I do, however, believe that God has allowed me to experience this great need, so that I could and would speak on behalf of the least of these with passion and conviction. So I will begin now.
God is moving in east Africa and around the globe through an organization called Compassion International. Through one on one child sponsorship, you can break the cycle of poverty through financial, emotional, physical and spiritual investments in their lives. They are by no means the only Christians on the front lines of ministry, but they do offer an incredible opportunity for you, as an American, to impact the nations with the Gospel of Christ.
