Olive's story was amazing. But as far as inspiring my ministry to children to come alive, it did not have that effect. My ministry to my sponsored children was quite alive; we had regular communication both ways. But all that was changed with the new system in April, nearly cutting off the communication.
Specifically regarding Olive's outcome, I am getting the impression that new changes have done away with the Leadership Development program and are steering kids to more 'realistic' options. It would seem that dramatic stories like Olive's are not what most of the Compassion kids will see. The more I learn about the countries where Compassion kids live, the more I wonder what their lives will really be like once out of the Compassion program. These are families who struggle to have enough food to eat, who cant find jobs. What will happen to the kids after they are out of the program? Will they be able to generate enough income to survive, in countries where most of the people live in poverty and there are no jobs?
