In 1994 I began sponsoring a little girl in Kenya through Compassion International. Eager to change the world from my dormitory room, I set out to make a difference in Judith’s life. Very quickly I realized how far my monthly contribution was going and how much this sponsorship was changing Judith’s life and living circumstances. I was very pleased to be making a global impact, but began to realize Judith was not the only one who was being changed.
I wanted to do more, but sponsoring more children at this point in life was not an option. Instead, I became an official volunteer advocate and began talking about Compassion’s ministry to others in hopes of recruiting new sponsors.
