I had the opportunity to watch some of the episodes from a new show Missions in Action, in which they are highlighting some of Compassion International's work in the Philippines.
The first episode highlight a specific project and their struggle with the severe flooding in the area. Definitely worth while watching. But the second video takes you into and extremely dense squatter community and into the life of a young lady named Maan. Who grew up through Compassion's child sponsorship program, and was excepted into Compassion's Leadership Development Program and how Jesus has given her hope and the ability to dream! Hope is written all over Maan's face as she talks about her future and desire to give back to Compassion, who has given so much opportunity and hope to her.
Please take a minute to watch.
