Thank you speaking up for children around the world. Below are some simple next steps.
Thank God for the children you helped find sponsors for. Pray for people who are considering sponsorship, that they will take the step of faith.
Leave your sponsorship table up.
If you still have boys and girls who need sponsors, leave the remaining child profiles out on display. Ask your pastor for permission to make a brief follow-up announcement the week after your event.
Return the sponsorship forms and other materials to Compassion.
Use the return envelope and the prepaid FedEx label to send back the completed child sponsorship forms and payments you received. You can drop it off at any FedEx or arrange for a pickup via fedex.com. You do not need to return unused child packets.
Take the online survey.
Your feedback is important. Please be on the lookout for an email from Compassion with a link to the Compassion Sunday survey. Your input will help us make next year’s Compassion Sunday tools and resources even better.
I have held Compassion Sunday in small churches, not expecting a huge result. To my surprise, several children have been sponsored. Small home-town churches are very eager to help children in poverty.
