Compassion: Blog Month is Coming!

     Each September, Compassion has a God-sized goal to sponsor children through blogs like yours and mine.  This year, Compassion hopes to gain sponsorship for 3,160 children by 11:59 pm on September 30.
     Each week a writing prompt will be provided by Compassion with the goal of putting the needs of children before the heart of our readers.  
     Did I mention that there are prizes?!  Having five children sponsored through your blog makes you eligible for the Grand Prize, which is a spot on a 2014 Blog Trip.  I would love to go to Indonesia!  That's where our sponsored child, Jimi lives.  There are other prizes as well.  You can read about them here. 
    Sponsoring a child is easy.  Just visit the Compassion Website.  Each month our family gives just $38, tax deductible, which provides Jimi with food and clean water, medical care, educational opportunities, and life skills training.  Jimi also gets to hear about Jesus and is encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God.  We exchange letters with him.  It is wonderful to see how Jimi has grown.  

     Here are the posts that I wrote for Blog Month last year.
   Children are waiting.  Wouldn't you like to join us?
