Have you read any of the posts shared by the Compassion bloggers who just returned from their trip to Uganda? Some of them are amazing. Brianne McKoy wrote one that takes my breath away. It is certainly worth reading. Myquillan Smith's is both funny and touching. There are more. Go here if you'd like to find the rest.
The bloggers are hoping to sponsor 400 Ugandan children through their posts about the trip. As of today 354 have been sponsored. Is today the day you choose to change a child's life for the better? Sponsor a child here. After reading these blog posts, I'm even more certain that sponsorship through Compassion does "release children from poverty in Jesus' name."
