It was a joy last week to spend time with leaders of Compassion International in solidifying a partnership with our church. Compassion International is a Christian child sponsorship organization dedicated to the long-term development of children living in poverty around the world. Biltmore’s focus will be on Ecuador with the goal of sponsoring thousands of children as well as planting many churches.
Strategically, there are many things I like about partnering with Compassion International: their quality control, financial accountability and efficiency, unapologetically Christian theology as well as their local church partnerships.
Personally, it was amazing to meet two children Lori and I sponsor: 5 year old Mayte and 7 year old Henry.
Henry praying for me will always be one of my lifelong ministry highlights. The time with them was definitely a reminder of Acts 20:35…. remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” I can’t wait to kick off our partnership with Compassion International soon!
