I hope you and Craig are doing well and enjoying this Christmas week! I just called and spoke with someone in your office who said you were out, (hopefully enjoying some vacation time!), so I thought I would just send you a quick email to thank you for your faithful support this year — both through your giving as a business and personally. Thank you specifically for your recent gift to Compassion’s Unsponsored Children’s Fund!

In Peru earlier this year, we had the chance to help a child development center serve lunch to the 200 children in the program there. I walked from room to room with trays of food and watched the joy of every child. Every child was with a friend, ready to say prayers of thanks for the meal in front of them. Every child enjoyed the (truly delicious) meal before cleaning up their spot and heading out to play.

I knew there were dozens of kids who were waiting for sponsors – waiting for the letters that would empower and encourage them. I couldn’t tell who they were. That is a testament to your gift to the Unsponsored Children's Fund. When children are waiting for a sponsor, they don’t miss a meal. They don’t miss out on school or medical care. Waiting children know they are loved as soon as they are registered into the program. Our loving churches reach out and bring them close while they wait on a sponsor.

Your gifts make the wait easier. Your gifts help us reach more and more children with the truth about who they are. There are 1.7 million children in our program who know they are loved, treasured, and gifted. You are helping us bring that truth to the millions of others just beyond our reach.

Blessings to you and yours this Christmas, and thank you again.

In Him,

Katie Phillips
