Bloggers go to Uganda

It's blog month at Compassion International. I've never been to Africa, but know that there are many here who have. Every single time I hear or read about someone's experiences there, I hear very similar things. Things like, 'I knew the poverty was bad, but I didn't know how bad until I saw it firsthand.'. Until we see things up close and personal, it is too easy to put our blinders on and pretend that dirt floors and empty bellies don't exist.

If you visit Compassion and read about what they are doing right now, I think it will excite you! They have brought a bunch of bloggers from all walks of life in the blogosphere to share their witness with the world! I heard about it through Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer, because she was given the opportunity to go. You can go to her blog now and see her updated posts about how her journey has begun.

If you have a blog and have a Compassion story, share it. February is blog month at Compassion and they want you to Share Your Love for Compassion. If you blog your experience, you can receive a free Compassion scrapbook!

Check out these blogs and support them!
