Compassion International

Make a Difference

Despite a global pandemic, God is doing extraordinary things in other parts of the world and you can help make a difference in the life of a child in poverty. We are excited to continue our partnership with Compassion International, which pairs someone like yourself with a child in another part of the world who is living on less than $2 a day.

Compassion's Holistic Approach

Through a relationship with a local church and a caring sponsor, a child is able to discover his or her true value.

Love

That unlocks the potential within their heart.

Education

To defeat illiteracy and provide critical skills.

Supplements

To protect against malnutrition.

Health Care

To fight back against disease and sickness.

Spiritual Guidance

Christ-centered through a local church.

Recreation Activities

That protect from crime and violence and danger.

The Gospel

To overcome fear and hopelessness.

Our Partnership

There is a special connection between our partners in Guatemala and Compassion International’s ministry in Guatemala. In 2018 we formally began partnering with Eddy Xicay in central Guatemala, and Edgar and Eliu Morales in western Guatemala. Together, Pastor Edgar and his son Eliu serve impoverished families in rural western Guatemala. They run a water filtration business that provides them resources with which they can provide food, hygiene classes, and rides to the doctor to those who are in most need in their community. They also share the love of Jesus with these neighbors; they have planted one church, and are beginning to plant another church in their home.

In addition, Eliu consults with a number of churches in the area which are seeking to reach out to their communities. He has had a long-time consulting relationship with Camino al Cielo Church, which hosts a Compassion program.

First Pres members have the opportunity to sponsor Guatemalan kids through Compassion. We’ve worked with Compassion to identify those kids in need of a sponsor who are served at the Camino al Cielo Center, and other nearby centers. When we are able to do mission trips again, you will have the opportunity not only to meet your Compassion child, but also to gain a perspective of what God is doing in that community.
