TrueNorth is partnering with Compassion International and Iglesia del Nazareno Macas (Nazarene Church in Macas) to plant a new church and child development center in Gualaquiza, Ecuador. Our 2018 Christmas offering is being used to help establish this ministry in a very needy part of South America. We will help provide a large meeting room to seat 200 adults, 3 classrooms, a kitchen, and restrooms as well as electricity and water. Compassion International focuses exclusively with local churches to minister to children and their families in Jesus’ name. On May 19 and 26, every attender will have the opportunity to sponsor a Compassion child in Gualaquiza. Sponsoring a child provides not only spiritual development, education, health care and nutrition, but also the hope that comes from knowing there is somebody in the world that loves them. Please be praying about how God might be asking you to sponsor a child this year.
