For more than a decade, our Team Members have been united through sponsorship of children through Compassion International. We believe that this is one of the most powerful things you can do as a Mission Team participant ~ past, present, or future.
But, what makes the alliance between Identify and Compassion so special? Let's use a simple equation to explain......
MY Child Sponsorship with COMPASSION
+ MY Mission Experience with IDENTIFY
OUR GROWING, FACE-TO-FACE RELATIONSHIP
With this strategic approach, Identify works with Compassion to offer sponsorship for impoverished children in specific foreign communities where Identify is found.
It is a unique and very valuable meshing of the 2 organizations. Your monthly contribution, letters, and prayers are just the stateside part of your relationship with Compassion. When you add a Mission Experience every few years with Identify, you actually get to watch your child grow and develop in a whole new way! As Compassion Sponsors AND Identify Team Members, you are able to meet your child's family members, pastors, teachers, and friends and spend many days pouring into their lives. For example, a VBS Mission Experience allows you to become one of his or her Bible teachers. A MEDICAL Mission Experience gives you the opportunity to work hands-on with any physical issues that might hold your child back. An EDUCATION Mission Experience opens the door for you to coach your child in soccer or whatever your favorite sport might be. More than anything, a Mission Experience in your child's community brings powerful perspective to your sponsorship. For each of you, your bond and relationship will be richer and deeper because of it.
If you are interested in sponsoring a child (or several) through Compassion International, please check out this link. Each child you see is specific to Identify's work in our partner countries and communities ~ both in Ecuador and Guatemala. Children and availability may change day-to-day depending on sponsor sign-ups.
