We are bringing Compassion International's sponsorship campaign to a close. All month long, bloggers like me are praying for new sponsors to step up for 3,100 children in the poorest countries in the world. For $38 a month, the price of a dinner out, you can transform a child's life and faith.
Waiting: 236 Days for a sponsor.
Today I want to share 4 year old Davana with you. Isn't she precious? Davana lives in El Salvador and has been waiting eight long months for a sponsor since she was accepted into her local Compassion program.
In her home, Dayana lives with her father and her mother. Her father is employed as a laborer and her mother maintains the home. There are 3 children in the family.
Singing, art and playing with dolls are her favorite activities. She also attends church activities and Bible class regularly.
Dayana lives in the hills of Zaragoza, home to approximately 26,700 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement and have corrugated iron roofs.
The regional diet consists of maize, beans, bread and rice. Common health problems in this area include diarrhea, dengue fever and respiratory diseases. Most adults in Zaragoza work as day laborers and earn less than two hundred dollars per month. This community has electricity but needs potable water, schools and affordable education.
Your sponsorship allows the staff to provide Dayana with Bible teaching, medical exams, home visits, health instruction, recreational activities, tutoring, snacks, literacy training, social events and skills training. The center staff will also provide parents' school, retreats and meetings for the parents or guardians of Dayana.
Visit Compassion International’s Sponsor a Child page. Pray over which child speaks to your heart. Will you sponsor a child with a heart next to their name which indicates that they have been waiting a long time for sponsorship? Perhaps they share a birthday with your child? Maybe they live in a country where AIDS is rampant? Ask God to help you make a commitment as a family to change this child’s life.
