This post is a re-visit to my 5,000th Twitter post earlier in the year. I’ve updated it with another moving video that I just saw. That video is down below. Take a few minutes to watch, pray, and consider what you will do.
James 1:27 says:
“Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.”
There are a lot of causes out there, but Tina and I have a big heart for the children that are hurting in this world.
Compassion International is an organization and mission that we greatly believe in here at the Cordova house.
Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.
Founded by the Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training.
Today, Compassion helps more than 1 million children in 25 countries.
Meet Rafonzel. I first heard about this extraordinary young woman when I took a group of students from Crosspoint to a Student Life camp in Daytona beach. Her story touched me, and changed my life. Watch these videos and you’ll see why…
These are the kids that Tina and I sponsor:
This is Exvin and Lovely Rose. We’ve never met this kids before but we love them and pray for them on a regular basis. It’s amazing to think that a simple $64 a month has help clothes, feed, and educate them over the last few years. We love receiving their letters in the mail and we love to send them notes of encouragement as well. They have been a LARGE blessing in our lives.
So, I just wanted to post, and draw attention to this incredible organization and ask you, would you please consider sponsoring a child?
You can follow Compassion on any of these social networks:
Here’s the newest video that moved me to repost this blog post from another blog I used to run.
