Friends in Radio Reporting Live and Skyping with Sponsors

September 30th, 2010


Yesterday my new friends  John Owens, Steve Sunshine and Joe Paulo from North and South Carolina treated their listeners to live broadcasts from Ethiopia including the opportunity for some sponsors to meet their sponsored children via Skype.  In fact, Steve Sunshine and his family were included in that group… Steve is here with us and got to meet 2 of his sponsored children yesterday.  I had the opportunity to help hang out with the children and hand out gifts while they were doing their broadcast.  What an emotional and special time.  The children came carrying the letters/photos and trinkets they had received over the years to show their sponsors that they still had them.  They came with either a relative or representative from their Compassion project and everyone who was there expressed such intense gratitude.  Thank you Compassion International and it’s sponsors for making moments like these possible for these families!

    What an awesome time it sounds like Stacey Had! I would have loved to go and visit my Compassion child (she’s in Uganda), or even see her via Skyp, isn’t technology these days awesome!
    I love hearing the broadcasts on the radio. 2 yrs ago during the March 24 hrs of compassion I decided to stop procrastinating and go ahead and sponsor a child. I can testify that it has really opened our eyes to the fact their are areas of need all over the world.
    God belss you Stacey and all the people involved in Compassion and WJTL also!
