I know you’ve seen the TV commercials
with the children searching through trash just to help their families make ends meet. It tugs at your heart, doesn’t it?
There are plenty of child sponsorship agencies out there and I certainly haven’t looked into many of them at all. But I have looked at Compassion International and love the work they are doing in the name of Jesus and the outcomes God provides in the lives of children and families around the world.
We might wonder whether sponsorship really works. Several years ago Compassion participated in a study about the outcomes of child sponsorship.
In part, the study showed that sponsored children are 50-80% more likely to graduate from college and approximately 35% more likely to have white collar jobs. As a direct result of coming to know Jesus, sponsored children are 40-70% more likely to become church leaders. That may be the most significant statistic of them all.
