I’m more of a World Vision person, but Compassion International has caught my attention in recent days. How? With bloggers!
CI is taking a group of well-known bloggers in Christian circles – people who have blogs that would be considered viral – and flying them to Uganda to bring awareness to the situation there. They are making the most of a movement and bringing several of the bloggers that I read with them.
We had Pastor Herman from Uganda with us last May. You hear a lot of different crises in Africa – the HIV pandemic in South Africa, the current crisis in Darfur, but you hear little about the crisis that has ravaged much of Uganda and left many children without their parents.
I’m praying that the bloggers will be forever changed, that hearts will be tugged and that children will find compassion from sponsors who want to make a difference.
