My New Little Girl


Meet Venkatamma.  She’s 3 and she lives in India.

Isn’t she precious?  I love the red ribbons in her hair and the bracelets on her arms.  I love how properly she’s standing and how she’s nervously gripping her shorts.  I love her big wide eyes.

Today I became her sponsor and I can’t wait to get to know her better.  I can’t wait to hear how a small sacrifice of $32/month for me will create immenous opportunities for her.


I’m so excited to be your sponsor.  You are an amazing and beautiful little girl!  I know God has big dreams for your life and I hope that I can be even a small part of that.  This is what I’m praying for you…

… that you experience love and joy every day

… that you do well in pre-school and develop a love for learning

… that you have moments to enjoy playing with your dolls and your friends

… that you stay healthy and strong

… that you learn about God and give your life to him soon

… that you know that you are loved and thought of every day by a busy, self-absorbed woman who is finding her heart already softened and changed because of you.

Your new friend,


Cross Point – you’ll have a chance to sponsor a child through Compassion tomorrow at both of our campuses.

For all the rest of you – go here and sponsor a child of your own.

We CAN make a difference… one life at a time!

    Precious! If you need advice on what to send or say to a 3 yr old girl, I’ve got your living example here. Love that Venka is a girly-girl like you.
