I've talked about Compassion International before when discussing ways to give. Almost a year ago now, Caleb and I made the decision to sponsor a child through Compassion International and it has been great. It is $38 a month to provide schooling, healthcare, nourishment and lessons teaching life skills to one child.
This is Enzo and he is 6 years old
We have already received several letters and have written him back in return. I was reading this blog yesterday about how powerful letters from sponsors can be in these children's lives. Financial support is great and very needed, but our words of encouragement and prayers are needed just as much! Compassion now allows you to write letters online through their website, attach pictures, etc. They've made it SO easy for you to be a part of a child's story.
