"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

Questions to my Compassion International friends

Okay, I know there are more of you reading than on my "follower" list so hopefully someone out there reading this has an answer.

I sent Efrata (Ethiopia) a family gift of $100 in June. I haven't heard anything yet. I did recieve a letter dated in September talking about the birthday money that I sent back in April (it was written 5 months after I sent the birthday money) but nothing was mentioned about the family gift.

How long has it taken you to get a response to a family gift? It's been 6 months since it was sent. I'm wondering because I also sent Nanese (Haiti) money this summer & got a reply from her less than 3 months later.

Is 6+ months normal or should I check with Compassion? I'd really like to know what they got (and that they got it.)

Want to avoid the line at the stores?

Why don't we stop buying just to buy, and giving just to give & instead we change a life. You can purchase very SPECIAL gifts through Compassion International & do just that. You can make a difference in the life of a child living in poverty. Instead of buying something meaningless this Christmas, spend a little less on unnecessary things and make a true impact in someones life.

What's on your list that can be trimmed down so that you can replace it with a Compassion gift?

"I am only one, but still I am one.

I cannot do everything, but still I can do


And because I cannot do everything,

I will not refuse to do

The something I can do.”
