Our tour of Compassion International’s Global Ministry Centre in Colorado Springs, USA finalises today (although wouldn’t it be fun if we could sneak back in for another surprise peek sometime…?) I have loved this series and I know that you have too. It’s been the next best thing to actually going there. Please take lots of photos as you have a final look around; stop and say hello to all the lovely staff we’ve met; and make sure you leave a final comment, letting our wonderful virtual tour guide know how appreciated they are to have taken time out to give us this very special tour… enjoy! :)
Say hello to this little guy, proudly showing you a photo he received from his sponsor. For those of you who are already aware of how meaningful photos are to children, this little guy’s facial expression comes as no surprise. But, if you haven’t had the chance to send a photo in your letters, it is a simple and inexpensive way to share your love and encouragement. And if simple is appealing, photos are easily uploaded when you are using the online stationery to write your letters.
We have been able to learn some new things; see technology; and even visit a few of the processes in the DCR [Distribution Center where the mail is processed], and now, I would love for you to meet a few more people.
Before she slips through Compassion’s door, let’s greet Della. Among the many and assorted of her responsibilities, Della provides training for the volunteers. She has a great balance of melding the importance of following documented procedure, with congeniality and authenticity.
Before Jason, Tina and Bonnie need to return to their respective responsibilities, please say hi. Jason is a participant with Team Compassion and recently cycled with other participants to earn funds for Children’s Hospital. If you haven’t already, please visit the official Compassion blog to see how Compassion reaches out to support others in need.
You might remember Tina from an earlier post; her smile is contagious. Tina has a servant’s heart and is the go-to person, when volunteers have a question or need supplies. Last, but not least, is Bonnie, who is the new Volunteer Manager. Her warm smile and visits to the DCR allow the volunteers to feel connected. Serving alongside Bonnie is Andrea [below – behind the desk], who organizes each volunteer’s work for that shift and follows through by visiting each volunteer personally and collectively.
Compassion’s Global Ministry Center displays numerous photographs that not only touch the heart, but compel the viewer to be inspired to write, pray, or even investigate the potential of visiting his or her sponsored child. Please spend a moment or two looking at the following photos and if you are led to, pray. There is an abundance of areas needing covered. Partner countries, country office staff and ministry workers…
…Compassion leadership, employees, volunteers and all that you would imagine when a ministry is committed to serving the Lord.
Your own personal ministry is essential and your virtual visit to Compassion’s DCR is appreciated.
Come back as often as you like!
I close with this verse, Numbers 6:24-26 The LORD bless you, and keep you, the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious unto you. The LORD lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.
