In 1998, we began sponsoring Israel from Haiti who was 4 at the time. He will be completing the Compassion Program this fall. We have been blessed to visit twice in his country. Our prayer is to stay in touch with him.
In 2011, we began sponsoring Lovely from Haiti who was 3 at the time. She lives only 12 miles from Israel. They were able to meet each other in November of 2011 when we visited with both of them. Her name was perfect as God has shown us so much love through sponsoring Israel.
In 2012, we became sponsors to Lawrence in Uganda and Ruth in the Dominican Republic as we shared the child sponsorship program through Compassion Sunday. We met Ruth in January of 2013 and hope to visit Lawrence next year in Uganda.
I am very excited about the photo scavenger hunt as it allows me to share more about the work of Compassion and the love we have for our sponsored children.
As you view the photos I have collected to complete this #CompassionHunt, please consider becoming a sponsor.

|Livestock equals livelihood for many in the developing world. When we send birthday and family gifts, our children will tell us with great appreciation how they bought a pig, cow, or goat with it.|
|Did you know that 24,000 children under the age of 5 die every year, mostly from preventable diseases. We are sponsors through Compassion to help children receive medical care.|
|Braided Hair...Our Ruth had the most beautiful braided hair with pink braids. Both of us love pink.|
|Compassion partners with the local church. Here is a photo of a Compassion sponsor who wanted to show his sponsored girl where he went to church.|
