RELEASING CHILDREN FROM POVERTY IN JESUS' NAME
I am very excited to have been invited to be a Compassion Music Artist Ambassador. Compassion International's slogan is "Releasing children from poverty in Jesus' Name!" It is a great honor to be chosen to be a part of this program.
Many of the churches and venues I have played, and am scheduled to play, are interested in learning about Compassion. They are very gracious in allowing me to present information about Compassion's work with children.
Compassion is very integral in helping the children grow in their Christian faith by attending church and Sunday School. They also provide schooling, medical needs, dental needs, nutritional needs, hygiene needs, and other basic needs of life.
But most importantly, these children are learning about the love of God and the saving grace of Jesus Christ! And by sponsoring a child, you can help these children grow in their Christian faith by praying for them and by writing encouraging letters. They love to receive letters!
One of the best decisions I made was to become a Compassion Music Artist Ambassador. It is an honor to partner with Compassion. Partnering with Compassion makes my music ministry more meaningful. It is an opportunity for people to sponsor a child and have a global impact for the Gospel of Jesus.
On January 19, 2020, I played at Calvary United Methodist Church in Lemoyne, Pennsylvania. Two families sponsored children. They were very excited to sponsor the children, as the children will be very excited when they learn they have a sponsor. It brings me great joy to see people excited about sponsoring a child.
The boy I sponsored completed his program in December of 2019. It was touching to be a part of his life, encourage him and pray for him. But it is not a one-way street. He encouraged and prayed for me too!
I am excited about his future. I hope he continues in his faith and grows closer to God and Jesus.
May God bless all the sponsors and all the kids they sponsor!
