Compassion First works in some of the poorest communities in Indonesia. In these communities, our work focuses on preventing vulnerable children from being trafficked through providing educational scholarships, holistic care, entrepreneurial opportunities, and community events.
Minar was my friend. She hosted me and many of my friends in her home whenever I came to town for the 8 years I was privileged to know her.
I wanted everyone I knew to know her too.
She was the brightest light whose example lit the way for countless other wicks to find their flame. No one can take her place but we can step into our own lives and shine. In this way, her light is not dimmed but magnified.
Because Minar went first in so many ways, other women are realizing their worth and rewriting the narrative of their own family lines. Whole communities are embracing possibilities of promising futures because of her.
When you give this Christmas, you are resourcing new beginnings inspired by Minar’s life. When you give, you are funding and included in the legacy of a humble life fueled by a beautiful God.
Jesus. Who came for us, stays with us and loves us back to life again.
