After we became sponsors with Compassion International, I began to learn more about the history of this organization.
Everett Swanson was a pastor out of Chicago and he was over in South Korea in the early 1950's. I could tell you more about him, but I am going to let you watch this video instead:

There are millions of people around the world who know who Jesus is because Everett Swanson started Compassion International.
But what I think is really cool?
The lives of of at least 34 children and their families are being changed because of Compassion sponsors at our church!
Families from our church are currently sponsoring Compassion children in the following countries: Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Ghana, Indonesia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Tanzania, Togo, and Uganda.
This month, we have posted some highlights about the Dominican Republic on our Compassion board in the lobby.
What country do you think we should highlight next?
