A threefold cord





You don’t have to follow my blog long before you realize that one need that has caught my heart is orphan care in its multifaceted areas.

I’ve learned a lot by attending Orphan Summits sponsored by the Christian Alliance for Orphans. I’ve been helped by Together for Adoption conferences and will be speaking at the national gathering in September.

Compassion International is present, visible, and supportive at all these events. That makes sense. Not all the children sponsored through Compassion are orphans, but many are. And there is a significant overlap in the physical, educational, and spiritual needs of orphans and other children in extreme poverty.

So these three ministries that I feel close to are intertwined in these few days that Talitha and I are in Guatemala as part of a Compassion sponsor tour.

I’ll be posting stories, impressions, and links to photos at Tell Me When to Pack, my travel blog. I do hope you’ll follow our trip there. Please.
