July Compassion JOYS

It's that time of the month when we take a few moments to name all the gifts and blessings God has brought our way through the ministry of Compassion. Join us!

we received 8 letters this month....

One letter was very special in that it was a report of how Kendry's family used the $ we sent as a family gift earlier this year. After visiting their home and asking what their needs were, we learned that they were wanting building materials to make a better home. And I also learned that Kendry, at age 12, was still sharing a bed with his sister. So I requested that the money be used for a bed for him.

Duncan in Kenya turned 16 on July 23rd

We also learned that Rubi in East India, our correspondent child for the past 6 years, left Compassion's program to pursue work. She has been in college for a couple years now, studying to be a teacher. I feel so blessed to have had six years to encourage her through letters and pray God will continue to work in her life.
