As you may have heard, GRACE was selected as the Compassion International local ministry highlight for last week’s Rock & Worship Roadshow, a variety tour that features the nation’s top contemporary Christian artists. The event strives to provide spiritual renewal and spread awareness on the global impact of child sponsorship.
The crowd that nearly filled the American Airlines Center was asked to make a cash donation to fund the next concert location. The heart behind the appeal was to support future events in the same way the previous host city funded the Dallas performance. Compassion International pledged the first $2,000 to be given to GRACE programs.
The night itself was an incredible experience for GRACE staff, board members and GRACE Transitional Housing clients. The generous gift to support children in our local community is a testament to Compassion International, who essentially pioneered child sponsorship in the 1950’s after witnessing the dire circumstances children face in developing countries.
Their heartfelt gift and unprecedented platform of 14,000 attendees reminded us that God always provides for His children whether they live in the Philippines, Indonesia, or our own neighborhoods and cities.
We are grateful to Compassion International for their generosity and pray their efforts are blessed abundantly!
