What movies have taught you about God?

One movie out this weekend - Queen of Katwe - taught us a lot.

In God’s eyes, we all are kings and queens. Disney's new film Queen of Katwe shows how we all are filled with possibility, no matter the circumstances.

Poverty robs children of hope. Hope that tomorrow can be different than today.

That’s why we’re in the dream-making business.
These young athletes in the Compassion sponsorship program inspire us with their heart, determination and discipline to dream like a champion!

In August 2001, a month before her death on September 11 at the Pentagon, Angie and her friend Stacey traveled to Stacey’s home country of Jamaica. On the plane ride, Angie talked with Stacey about Johana, the Salvadoran girl she sponsored through Compassion.


After the attacks, on the edges of her grief, Stacey did the one thing that could bring her some comfort. She honored her best friend’s legacy by sponsoring Johana.

Fifteen years after the Sept. 11 attacks, a sponsor’s legacy still lives on.

Encouraging words carry extra weight in an environment that places children in situations they should never have to face.
They live in a dangerous slum, but 8-year-old Mariam and her mom have found cause for joy.

Nachi, a grandmother in Kenya, is a courageous woman. Most of her work is strenuous and worry steals her sleep at night. But she fears not for herself but for Collins, her beloved grandson whom she cares for after the death of his parents.

When we put our love into action, it results in a story changed.

In Kenya, Nachi's and her grandson Collins' story was defined by unimaginable hardship and grief. See how their story changed to one defined by hope.

I have supported a child in El Salvador for about 9 years now and have been very impressed by this organization. The letters and pictures of this child have come about 4 times a year. I send money for his birthday and receive a letter of what the local organization bought him which is usually clothes. I can assure others that this is a worthwhile ChristIan missional organization with high integrity. My only complaint is that I can't send more personal items to him and am limited to their regulations.

it seems like a great organization but I am suspicious of it. my mom has been donating for years and always writing letters. the letters don't add up ever and her questions never get answered. I wonder if there even is a girl sometimes.
Response from the owner - a year ago
Hi Blair. Sorry that your mom has been having some issues with her letters. We know that it can be really tough and even frustrating to pour into the life of a child without getting much back. Has your mom tried underlining or highlighting her questions? This helps our staff make sure that the child is able to answer them. Sometimes the timeline of the kids receiving and writing letters gets messed up, too. They might be writing a letter when yours is en route. All that to say, if her child continues to write the same things in the letters and does not answer her questions, please let us know by emailing socialmedia@compassion.com and we can work more closely with her sponsored child to help resolve this issue.
