Compassion Sunday and Paulina

Paulina is a sweet six year old, who lives in Columbia, and needs a sponsor.

As part of the upcoming April 21 Compassion Sunday, I am happy to introduce you to Paulina and ask if you would like the opportunity to change her life by sponsoring her.

If you are interested, you can visit my Compassion page HERE where I share my Compassion story.

There you can also learn how to sponsor Paulina

 *COMPASSION'S MISSION: Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible fulfilled Christian adults.

I thought I'd leave you with a quote from J.R. Miller.

My 16 year old daughter bought his book 'Come Ye Apart' at a flea market a few years ago because it looked 'really cool' being over a hundred years old. She's been reading this devotional and told me she thought this guy was pretty wise. : )

For some reason last night she asked me if she could read one of the devotions to me. She chose April 6th. The devotion was called 'Faith seen in our works.'

Here's the quote from the end of the devotion:

"Praying for missions is right, but it is no acceptable substitute for giving if we are holding the Lord's money in our hands. God wants to see our faith."

  1. Such a great quote by J.R. Miller. God has been speaking to me about this a lot lately....the need to put our faith into action! UNITED in Him, Jen

    1. Hi Jen, it is such a great quote.

      I was putting off this post and when my daughter read this to me I just knew I had to get busy and post it, so I included the quote as well. :)

  2. What a great quote. It hurts a little and that's the best kind.

  3. Dear Cathy
    I would love to sponsor Paulina. At the moment we have two sons at university and we have only one salary per month. We can see next year when my oldest finishes his masters degree.
    But I will pray for provision for her .

    1. Hi Mia, I appreciate your prayers for Paulina! I hope she gets sponsored soon. I know there is one person out there who God is preparing for her. :)

  4. Thank you for your heart, and for linking with IP, friend.

  5. Hi Cathy,
    Thank you for sharing the beautiful quote from JR Miller's book and paulina's story. I pray that she gets a sponsor soon. I appreciate your love in action for these children. Visiting from Missional women.

    1. Thanks for your prayers Betty and for stopping by! : )

  6. Love this quote going to tweet it!

  7. Thank You Cathy for your post, like others have said the quote is full of wisdom. I have shared your post. Blessings.


Feel free to leave your own thoughts in the comments. I try to respond to all of them by the end of the week. : )
