As 2010 draws to a close, I thought it might be neat to do a little “Compassion in 2010” review.
This year, I officially became a Compassion Advocate. (Will 2011 be the year YOU become one?) I went to my first Advocates conference and learned SO much about all of the work this organization does.
I worked my first tables at Compassion sponsored events. I even got to work a table with my husband at a Selah show, which was such a GREAT experience!
I also got the chance to meet Shaun Groves at Kingdom Bound. I am embarrassed to say that I was a teensy bit star-struck and in awe. I can’t remember what I actually said to him, but I know that it wasn’t much and I probably sounded like a fool. lol
In 2010, we welcomed three into our family.
While we said farewell to one.
By my counts, I was able to help over 20 children find sponsors! Woohoo! To God goes all of the glory!
I wrote over 200 letters to our sweet Compassion International kids, some via snail mail and some via email.
I did the Happy Dance at the mailbox 66 times after receiving the much sought-after beige envelopes.
All in all, it was a great year as far as Compassion goes. On a personal level, we’ve had our fair share of struggles, but those work to pull us closer with God and remember Who we really need to rely on.
Here’s to an even better 2011!!
