Last week while I was at the Leadership Summit I was introduced to the Compassion Leadership Development Program. I have always admired what organizations like Compassion are doing to support children around the world but up to this point have not committed to sponsoring a child on an ongoing basis (Gasp! I’m a little ashamed to admit that… it’s only $30/month, right?).
Anyway, this week I learned about this program and I thought “This is it! This is the way I’m supposed to be involved!” I was so excited. I took the brochure back to my hotel room and started reading all the fine print… I was ready to sign the dotted line and start sponsoring a young leader…
but, then I read this all important detail:
Your sponsorship of $300 per month will help a promising young person continue down the road to professional Christian leadership.
And my heart sank…
$300 a month! Don’t misunderstand me. I’m sure it actually costs this much. In fact I’m quite sure that it does. I don’t know what I thought it would cost. I hadn’t really gotten to that detail because I had found a cause that my heart could resonate with, but this hurdle has brought me to a screeching halt.
So, my BIG PRAYER is to figure out what God wants me to do with this. Do I need to partner with others to meet this monthly contribution? Is there some other way that I can give to this program? How can I be a part of helping young leaders have the opportunity for continued eduction and Christian leadership development?
Will you join me in praying my BIG PRAYER?
