Be inspired by one story you could share on Compassion Sunday

"I grew up in a tough environment. I stayed with my grandmother, and life was hard. Water entered the house because it was thatched. We used to sleep on beds made by my grandfather himself. We were also food insecure.

Being sponsored really helped me. Firstly, spiritually... My life changed from there.

In education, going to school, they made sure my fees were paid. What really spurred me on was the encouragement. I could now see the light and realised that I could reach a certain point.

Today I am a welder. I craft items needed by the community such as desks and swings. I also teach children at the [Compassion] centre at weekends. I really desire that they get to learn just as did." - Emanuel, Compassion graduate, Tanzania
