Compassion International

The Buies are having a baby! Ok. Not really! But we do have a child! Through Compassion International, we have decided to give just $38.00 a month to sponsor a child in need.

By sponsoring a child, I will enable my child to have opportunities...
  • The opportunity to hear the gospel and learn about Jesus

  • The opportunity to receive an education

  • The opportunity to be healthy

  • The opportunity to develop self-confidence and social skills
Buie and I are so excited about OUR OPPORTUNITY to help a child in need. It is amazing to think that our 38 dollars will stretch so far to help pay for healthcare, food, and education. Here in the United States, thirty-eight dollars will barely buy us a decent dinner at a restaurant. We are willing, however, to give up going out to eat once a month in order to pay for our child sponsorship.

Well, let's see him already! ...
After waiting anxiously for an envelope from Compassion International, it FINALLY arrived with this picture enclosed.


His name is Alexander and he's from Nicaragua. Isn't he adorable? We are calling him "Alex" for short. I am looking forward to sharing stories and pictures with him. Please remember Alex is your prayers.

Will you consider sponsoring a child for just $38 dollars a month! If 38 dollars is out of your budget consider splitting this monthly cost with a friend, roommate or co-worker. By splitting with just four people, your monthly sponsorship would be LESS THAN $10!! And you would be impacting a child for a lifetime! Please think about this opportunity!

Sweet! :) Good for you. We sponsor a little girl from Kenya. Too bad she was on the opposite side of the country from where we were.
