Several of us just returned from an incredible trip to Colombia. We came to see the dynamic church-planting partnership between Compassion International and Foursquare churches in Colombia. Together they are planting churches in highly impoverished areas where children are most vulnerable. Each church launches with 200 sponsored kids from 200 different families in the immediate community. Compassion partners with volunteers from the church to feed, disciple, & mentor these kids toward holistic health.
This video tells the story in more detail:
Here are some ways we can partner together as a district to make a huge kingdom impact:
1) We can help to fund a church plant that will have an immediate impact on more than 200 children and families (3 new church plant opportunities are ready & waiting)
2) We can host a Compassion Sunday that invites our congregations to become child sponsors (this is a turn key program ready for implementation)
