Reflection from the field: the role of one

"I thank God for the opportunity of being part of the Compassion family for 12 years. Registering new children into the programme is the activity in the ministry I get most excited about. It is such a Godly and inspiring moment when you see the beaming joy of those registered.

During my journey of 12 years, God has continually taught me about the role of an individual. One staff member in the field matters a lot. So does one sponsor who decides to step out and help a child in need. Each one of us is unique, different and uniquely gifted.

The examples of Jonah and Joseph in the Bible exemplify how God can use one individual powerfully.

Reflect on the role that God has given you. Whether that’s as a sponsor helping to care for one child, or as a staff member or volunteer. Give thanks that God can use you in mighty ways."

By Elieshi Kisinza, Compassion project director in Tanzania
