So any reader of this blog or friend of mine knows that I'm an advocate for Compassion. The company I work for has a partnership with them, but my advocacy goes beyond that. However, most of my talk about Compassion here has centered around my experience with them or those of my close friends and are most often filtered through the lens of our limited perspective since we're only a small few of those who have the privilege of joining Compassion in the work they're doing to release children from poverty in Jesus' name. Shaun Groves is a guy I've only met a couple of times, but who is a great voice for millions of children around the world who have none. He's a musician but also works with the Compassion Bloggers. Last week he had the great opportunity to be up in Colorado Springs at Compassion's home office to lead worship for their chapel service celebrating the sponsorship of their millionth child. You can read a little bit about it at his shlog. There he has a video they played at that service. I've only ever put Compassion videos on here that we had something to do with producing (we being those of us here at Student Life). But this one's worth it.
By the way, you, too, can be a part of releasing a child from poverty through sponsorship with Compassion International by clicking here.
