Weekend Links to Share's been quiet here in this space lately. Sorry about that. It's not's a combination of a lack of time, a lack of inspiration and a lack of motivation. Maybe it's because the weather is so nice and summer is in full swing here. My days are FULL and that's a good thing.

Regardless, here area a few links I ran across and wanted to share. are some exciting updates concerning Compassion's ministry and growth. As you read through them, praise God for what He continues to do through this ministry! (there were shared with me directly from Compassion)

  • Compassion has earned Charity Navigator's 4 start rating for the 13th year in a row, According the the nonprofict watchdog's VP, "less than a dozen of the 7,500 charities we rate have received 13 consecutive 4-start evaluations and Compassion International is the only international charity to receive this distinction."
  • Sponsor letter writing has increased for the first time in 7 years - from 61% to 64% in fiscal year 2014. Advocates do an amazing work sharing the importance of letter writing with sponsors.

  • In April, Compassion USA surpassed 900,000 children sponsored.
