Hi everyone. If you want to read something amazing, click here:
Right now, there are five bloggers from the United States who are in Kolkata for a week on behalf of Compassion International. Their accounts of their first day are remarkable -- I especially loved Pete's and Melissa's writing.
Compassion is a stellar organization, in my eyes, because they work through local churches and local people. They are alleviating poverty, but are also relieving the loneliness and isolation that often goes hand in hand with it.
I hope you get the chance to follow the posts during their trip. I was weeping while I read, because I can't help but picture Anya Rashi as they write about the children, and how grateful I am that people here are sponsoring children just like her.
