I woke up this morning on day 4 in the Philippines, not sure what to expect. Three, days ago I befriended an orangutang…
Yesterday, I danced with Jollibee to a Justin Bieber song…
But nothing could have prepared me for today.
I saw… such unhappy children at the Compassion Development Center. So sad.
This is Faith and she is in the Leadership Development Program.
So shy, withdrawn, lacking expression…
I was so worried about her, and her friend too. They both seemed sad and lacking confidence.
And I just don’t think the children at this project have any opportunity to have fun. Boring! What kind of place is this?
A church? Seriously?
After our time at the center, we went to visit the homes of two students.
These kids don’t need sponsoring. I mean, they don’t need anything.
Is Compassion making a difference? Looking at these girls that grew up in poverty and were sponsored, and are now in college through the Leadership Development Program, I am just not sure. It’s hard to tell.
My husband says I am a horrible liar.
You can make a difference today! Look at these children.
