Compassion International

My wife (@jillparker) and I have been wanting to do this for a while now, but we haven't done it yet. Until now. Last night...we started sponsoring a child with COMPASSION.

It all started on Sunday Morning, at North Point, when Jill and I heard Andy Stanley's message on using your "extra money" for something great. Then later that night she watched a video over at WhittakerWoman's blog... then I watched it... and the rest is history.


Please join us and sponsor a child too. It's only $32 a month. This money will make a difference in their lives. Actually 80% of the $32 goes toward meeting the physical, metal, social, economic, educational and spiritual needs of your sponsored child. And remember, a little will go a much longer way in a third world country.

We do not have "extra money" each month, but we figured out a way to make this happen. We canceled our home phone line and changed our cell phone plans to a lower package.

See... if we can do this, You can do this.

I'm excited to hear that you and your wife have taken this step of faith!

I can tell you from personal experience that God will use Loy to change your life.

My sponsored children have certainly changed mine.
