“And let us not grow weary of doing good for in due season we will reap if we do not give up. So then as we have the opportunity let us do good to everyone.” – Galatians 6: 9-10a
This month I have the joy of announcing that I have joined a network of bloggers for Compassion International. I am so thankful for this opportunity and the community which I am now a part of. As we continue looking at the relationship between sound doctrine and good works, I wanted to partner with various organizations who already exemplify the teachings of Titus 2. Compassion International does just that. Through financial support, sponsors are able to provide the resources for these precious children to receive sound doctrine in addition to meeting their basic needs. I am excited to be able to join their mission of “releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name” through this community of writers and bloggers.
As I stepped into this new opportunity, I was encouraged to be a part of the core of Compassion’s work; sponsorship. My sponsor packet arrived in the mail this week and I am so excited about starting a relationship with Laura, my precious little girl from Brasil. I look forward to seeing how this simple act of sending funds across the world to an eagerly awaiting little girl will cultivate my heart towards generosity.

As I got into my car to make the long trip back to Michigan, I started yet another audiobook to make my 12-hour drive seem a little more productive. I love documentaries and non-fiction books and this particular book came highly recommended by many of my friends. Kisses from Katie is a beautiful story of God’s faithfulness in response to Katie’s trust and courage. The real and honest truth of her journey is communicated through each chapter. I won’t tell you her whole story but I do want to highlight the ministry which God has developed out of her faithfulness. Amazima Ministries incorporates both sound doctrine and good works in a way I have never seen before. Seeing a need for education across Uganda, she followed the Lord’s calling to serve as a teacher and eventually as a ministry leader and mother. As Katie developed education sponsorship programs for these children, she invited them into her home and poured out her life before them. She recognized their physical needs which provided a beautiful opportunity to not only share but demonstrate the love of God to these children. God continues to use this ministry to impact the lives of hundreds of children each day through biblical teaching, basic education and hope for the future.
