Being part of the Compassion International Bloggers Network, we love virtually joining each team of bloggers that represent this network as they travel a couple times a year to learn about Compassion’s ministry. Some bloggers travel with Compassion more than once, and others have never seen poverty and hope contrasted up close. This week, a team of bloggers is in Nicaragua and we wanted to share their trip with you. That’s right, you can travel to Nicaragua without ever leaving your computer.
First, if you are unfamiliar with Compassion International’s work in Nicaragua, read about it here. Once you have been introduced, take a deeper look through the eyes of these bloggers. We want to highlight a few posts that have captured our hearts this week.
Have you ever wondered if hope could be possible amidst the trash? Could life be treasured in the city dump? Read this post to get one blogger’s beautiful perspective and join her as she meets her sponsored child.
We all know that Scripture tells us to care for the orphans time and time again. Did you know that we can prevent the label “orphan” from being given to a child? Yes, we can. Yes, you can. Read this to learn more.
Last Sunday was Father’s Day. I grew up without my earthly father in my life, but I met my Heavenly father when I was young. I could never imagine my life without Jesus. I pray you are as blessed as I was by reading this post about a daddy’s love.
Now that you have seen the photos and read the words, would you please pray about doing more? Would you show 9-year-old Engels that he is treasured and loved by his daddy Jesus? Would you reach out and love 15-year-old Walter and let him know he can reach his dreams?
Thank you for traveling to Nicaragua. Be sure to follow the bloggers that are there for a couple more days. Also, please pray for these bloggers, their families, and everyone they meet. Please pray for the words, the strength, the grace, and the gentle reminders that they are helping to change countless lives.
