Compassion

I blog for Compassion International. I have always had a heart for the mission field, especially in the Third World. While I have a passion for the local church and believe we, the global Church, should rise up to be the hands and feet of Jesus and an agent of social justice around the world, there are some non-profits making a significant impact. Compassion not only works to alleviate poverty in children worldwide, but also believes in preaching Jesus to a broken world. Compassion is an organization I believe in.

Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Founded by the Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training.

Today, Compassion helps more than 1.2 million children in 26 countries.

Mission Statement:

Releasing Children from Poverty in Jesus’ Name. In response to the Great Commission, Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.
