Challies in the Dominican Republic

Tim Challies and his son, Nick, are with others on a trip with Compassion International to the Dominican Republic, and are blogging their way through it.

Sometimes we can be hesitant to give because we don't know if an organization is legit or where it actually goes. This is a great way to learn more about Compassion International.

And a special word about Nick ("Challies Jr."). He's only eight years old! Looking through his blog I'm simply amazed. What a great way to document a short-term missions trip and to seek--even at a very young age--to testify to God's grace and compassion and heart for the poor and needy.

Reading and this week would be a great thing to do together as a family.
