Over 10,000 Children Saved in Uganda

We're still having a lot of Internet problems at this hotel. We even traveled to the Compassion Uganda office today to use their Internet connection. Please pray that our Internet connection will improve. We really need a high speed Internet connection for this trip to be a success.

One of the interesting things we learned today is that approximately 10,000 Compassion children became Christians in the past year! Compassion's ministry is not limited to just the spiritual development of the child though. Compassion also helps with a child's educational, physical and social well-being too. However, the spiritual development of the child is a crucial part of Compassion's child development program.

So far, we have received 54 child sponsorship requests since the trip began. Our goal is to find 500 sponsors for children in need. I would like to encourage you to prayerfully consider sponsoring a child today!
