I recently returned from a trip to Ecuador with Compassion International. I have been posting this week to share that trip with you (previous posts: Ecuador Trip With Compassion International and Ecuador (Day one in Quito). In this post I discuss our second day visiting one of the Compassion projects through a local church as well as doing an in-home visit with one of the families in the program.
Compassion by the numbers:
- Sponsoring children in 26 countries
- 1.4 million children sponsored
- last year 164,000 children made decisions to trust Jesus Christ as their Savior through Compassion programs.
- Approximately 449 children made the decision to trust Jesus Christ as their Savior everyday last year through the ministry of Compassion.
They have never had visitors before and they were very ready and excited.
Two sweet girls from the church who kept smiling at me at the church.
Pastors Clive Neil-Baldwin, Tim Spivey, myself and several of our new friends from Ecuador.
Our in-home visit. Mom is holding Abraham the boy I mentioned in the video.
The next update post will include more about the ministry as well as some of the food adventures that I experienced once we went to the jungle.
