In case you wonder what we think, we've dedicated a space for commentary (including guest posts). And take a look at who's been to Ambassador lately in our own version of the Greenroom!

Never Heard of You

Compassion International VolunteerThere are words that every ministry dreads to hear from a potential donor:

"Never heard of you."

Your breath catches in your throat, your eyelids blink rapidly.  Confidence in a mission statement or clever tagline suddenly feels useless when meeting someone who has never...heard...of...you.

This happened to me as a volunteer with Compassion International recently at a Fishfest music festival for KFSH-Los Angeles.

peacedoveAs a pastor I don’t think I see anything that causes more havoc in people’s lives than broken relationships. 

 

Children who can’t forgive their parents

Spouses who have “irreconcilable differences”

Neighbors who have not paid their “pound of flesh”

Forgiveness
