One Thousand Gifts (Continued)

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit"

(Romans 15:13).

Because of the work of the Holy Spirit, 6 more children will receive hope in the Lord Jesus Christ after this weekend through Compassion. What an amazing Sunday we had yesterday as we spoke in a very small local church about the work of Compassion. Praise God that lives are being transformed, children are being taught about the gift of salvation that comes through Jesus Christ, and the Gospel is being spread! Compassion and the local church are helping children discover hope for today and a brighter future. Children's' practical, ever day needs like medical care, food and education are being met through Compassion's ministry in Jesus' name!
