I recently read about this on Boo Mama. Having a child sponsored through Compassion myself and through the Buck Grove youth group, I know it's a great organization and I have full faith and confidence in them and the work they're doing for the Kingdom.
That said, there is a child named Alexander who needs heart surgery and needs it soon.
The surgery costs $8,303 and his family lives on $13.70 a month.
Do the math.
You can read about his condition here and make your one-time contribution here.
Even if you don't regularly sponsor a child you can contribute to Alexander's surgery. Give $5 and don't go to McDonald's tomorrow, it's as simple as that.
If you find yourself making excuses right now, let me share with you a little testimony.
Dusty and I have a very, shall we say, lean budget but here's a truth the Lord taught me at the beginning of our marriage: you will never be poor enough to disqualify you from helping others.
So let's help get this kid well, ok?
