Visiting Compassion

Our final day in Haiti we visited one of the Compassion International Projects in Port Au Prince. It was amazing to visit after having sponsored Compassion Children for almost 8 years. It was a place of joy, laughter, and hope. The kids had just finished their school day and were very interested to see the Blan (white people) that showed up. My favorite thing to learn was that they have extra-curricular activities on Saturdays, including guitar and art classes. We were able to purchase some paintings that the students had done and the money from the painting went back to the student who created it so they can purchase more art supplies. The kids were beautiful and I'm so happy we were able to experience Compassion.
