Celebrate Christmas with 6 Festive Gifts From Us to You

Thank you for your support during 2020!

Christmas is nearing and 2020 will soon be over. As we get ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus, we’d like to thank you, our sponsors, for faithfully supporting this ministry in what has been an incredibly challenging year.

Our church partners across the world are coping with COVID-19 restrictions as well as providing vital care for sponsored children, their families and communities during a global pandemic. But in partnership with you, our supporters, they’re able to shine God’s light of hope into the darkest situations.

We’ve heard of entire families turning to God and praising Him for His goodness when our church partners arrive with provisions. We’ve seen how sponsored children run to their parents in relief and hope when they see Compassion project staff knocking on their doors.

Christmas may look different for so many of us as 2020 draws to a close. But one thing is certain. Christmas will not be stopped. Sponsored children will be provided for thanks to you and Jesus will be remembered and celebrated.

We could not be more grateful.

Our CEO, Justin Dowds, shares:

“We are thankful for the faithful and prayerful support of our sponsors during what has been a challenging year. Their partnership is transforming the lives of children living in extreme poverty, their families, and even communities around the world. They’ve helped our church partners sow hope where there was none, bring joy when people were in despair – all in the name of Jesus. Thank you.”

As a small token of our appreciation, we’ve collected some free gifts for you to download and use in the lead up to Christmas. We hope it’ll be a blessing to you as we look to celebrate the arrival of God’s incredible salvation plan for the world – Jesus.

2. Compassion Carol Service

During this Christmas season, we held a free virtual carol concert to celebrate our unchanging God.

‘Carols with Compassion’ featured stunning musical performances from Philippa Hanna, Noel Robinson, Graham Kendrick, the London Community Gospel Choir, Hillsong London, Lurine Cato, Martin Smith and Elle Limebear. 

There was also a message on the hope of the Christmas story brought by Richmond Wandera, Compassion graduate and now senior pastor of New Life Baptist Church, Kampala.

This event is available for you to view on Compassion’s YouTube channel.

3. Peruvian Hot Chocolate Christmas craft

Did anyone say hot chocolate? As it gets colder, it’s so lovely to snuggle down with a hot beverage – especially a sweet cup of cocoa.

Call it a craft. Call it a recipe. No matter how you’d like to classify this, here’s an interesting activity all the way from Peru you can do with the entire family! Hint: it involves chocolate! Pop over to our sister organisation, Compassion UK’s site and have a look.
