Tim's Blog: This Is What I Know
As we begin the New Year, Compassion Australia CEO Tim Hanna reflects on what he knows about God and about children.
13 Jan, 2016
We’re now a few weeks into 2016 and I’ve been looking back on the year that was.
2015 was a big year for us at Compassion Australia with a wonderful increase in the number of children who now have sponsors. I think about the excitement the children must feel when they find out they have been sponsored, what joy the news must bring!
Children in Compassion’s programs have the opportunity to hear about the love of Jesus. Sponsoring a child is a wonderful way to spread the Word of God.
In the midst of Christmas and the New Year, I take the time to reflect on what I know. God is God—and I’m really glad He is. People are people—and I love the diversity that exists in Compassion. Children are children—and are at once the most resilient and most vulnerable of people. Hope is hope—and it delivers a certainty of life in its fullness.
As we begin 2016, I hope will you be refreshed, hope-filled, and rejoice in the knowledge of who He is.
