Last August I packed my warm clothes, passport and American mind-set and set off for Quito, Ecuador with Proverbs 31 and Compassion International. I knew I was going to see the poorest of the poor, but until I stood at the top of a mountain and looked out over a city of 13 million inhabitants, I didn't know poor.

Compassion International doesn't do a lot of advertising to find sponsors for the children in their programs. They believe that the best "marketing" is done by someone who has witnessed their work firsthand. So our team met in Atlanta, joined up with our Compassion guides and photojournalists, and set off for Ecuador.

I wrote a devotion about our trip if you would like to read it.

Today we got to see the video that was made from our trip. You'll see and hear me as we returned from one of the project sites. View Video.

If you would like to sponsor a child, I have 10 sponsorship packets leftover from a speaking engagement this week. I would love to sign you up and help you and your family get involved in a life-changing ministry. Send me an e-mail and let me know you are interested.

Grace & Peace,

Ecuador was a life changer! I am sure your roomie (he he) made all the difference! Glynnis I so appreciated your devo - P31 Encouragement for Today. So often we think that we have to wow our children. They are so content with the simple things in life, especially if they are surrounded with peace and comfort. God bless Tod's grandparents and all grandparents who shelter their wee ones.
