The Deal of a Life!


Best Return on Investment Ever
What can you buy for $38? Dinner out, maybe, if you choose your restaurant with care and skip the appetizer. Last year, you could have bought one share of stock in Facebook for $38, though it’s not worth that much today. A movie date might be doable if you go easy at the snack bar and don’t set your sights on Cinepolis.
How about a future? For $38 a month you can lift a child from the life-sucking quicksand of  poverty. “Sammy,” the Rwandan boy we sponsor through Compassion International, receives clean water to drink, nutritious food, education, and a chance to know Christ’s love for him. 
Did you ever give a twelve-year-old money as a gift? We sent Sammy some birthday cash. When he wrote to thank us, he told us what he bought. Not Legos or an Angry Birds t-shirt or a soccer ball–no, nothing like that.
Sammy spent his birthday money on chickens to help provide for his family. 
It can’t hurt to look, can it? Go ahead. Read our sponsorship story and peek at Anika, a three-year-old girl in Bangladesh who is waiting for someone to commit $38 a month to save her life. 
Could it be you? 

3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
