Meet Jeffry. He lives in Nicaragua, and he is Compassion’s 1,000,000 registered child.
The difference between a registered child and a sponsored child is that registered children are waiting to be sponsored.The registered children are the ones whose pictures you see on the web and in the child packets at concerts and other events, such as Compassion Sunday.
The registered children are the children who may wait several months to be chosen by a sponsor and who the Unsponsored Children’s Fund assists until that sponsor comes along.
The Unsponsored Children’s Fund bridges the gap between registration and sponsorship.Please help Compassion reach 1,000,000 sponsored children. Sponsor a child today.
(Copied from Love Laid Bare)
When we were in El Savador, we met many registered, but unsponsored children. Each of them knew they were unsponsored and longed to have a sponsor.
I can vouch for Compassion’s Unsponsored Children’s Fund because it allows a child to begin receiving Compassion benefits, trusting that God will provide their sponsor within a few months. Once or twice a year, Compassion asks for donations to the Unsponsored Children’s Fund and I admit that I’ve thrown those requests away in the past. I won’t anymore…even if I can only send $10 or $20, Mark and I will respond to that request…because we’ve seen the difference it makes!
