Our church in NJ partners with a church in Haiti, especially since the earthquake.  There is an annual missions trip in addition to other visits from a staff member at other times in the year, and we helped rebuild a church and school.  On Compassion Sunday, we sponsored 75 kids near that church.  Our church has the information of all of the folks who are sponsors, and a few of us are hoping to try to start a group with interested sponsors in our church.  Does anyone else have a group like this?  Ideas as to how we can best use this for God's glory in Haiti and in NJ?

Hi, I am another sponsor and belong to several secret Compassion Facebook groups. They are very private groups to protect the children and yet sponsors can post pictures of their child visits . Emily or Susan are the Compassion employees that answer these questions and can advise you about how to set up a Compassion Facebook group for your region of Haiti. You might enjoy joining the general group called Compassion Sponsors/Correspondents Facebook Forum if you would like to open this group to other Compassion sponsors that sponsor children in that same area of Haiti and you could invite them to join. Hope this idea is helpful.

Thanks, Denise!  I've looked for the Forum you mention both on FB and on this site and can't find it.  Can you help me?

Hi LJ! It sounds like God is doing some great things at your church! Yes, I think I would recommend creating a Facebook group for your church, if you are interested in interacting with members of your church who are sponsors. Facebook groups seem to work well for groups of people in the same region in particular so that would be a good fit. They are also free and relatively easy to manage.
