Thank you, Menlo Church, for partnering with Compassion International to expand the reach of the church in Peru and bring the hope of Jesus to children and families living in extreme poverty.
We are grateful for your commitment to help plant a new church in Peru. Your support helps a local church increase their capacity by creating a permanent structure for their ministry in this new community.
Your gift is making it possible to construct a new church building and to implement Compassion’s holistic child development program.
Compassion International highly values our partnerships — both with funding partners like you and with our implementing partners in the countries where we work. We strive to live out our Partnership Principles in how we partner with you and each new local church established in a child’s community.
Compassion’s Partnership Principles
- Each partnership is founded on our identity in Christ.
- We seek mutually beneficial and respectful relationships.
- We accept mutual responsibility and commitment.
- We produce visible transformation and outcomes.
With every new church planted with Compassion in developing countries, our local staff members work closely with an existing — or “mother” — church partner, to pursue a developmental approach that will help the new — or “daughter” — church grow strong quickly through mentoring.
We encourage local resource mobilization and local ownership from day one. We aim for this not only in the initial construction of the church infrastructure, but also in the ongoing program implementation of the child development center.
Like any relationship, laying a foundation for win-win partnerships takes time. We appreciate your understanding as our staff and local church partner work hard in the coming weeks and months to make the next milestones a reality. We commit to update you along the way as the construction process evolves.
Because of you, the Body of Christ in Peru is now mobilized to expand the kingdom and help more children be known, loved, protected and discipled. Thank you again for investing in this opportunity where we anticipate God’s Church benefiting the lives of children and releasing them from poverty in Jesus’ name.
