Compassion's Cry





This has been a long time coming. It is my great pleasure to reveal Compassion's Cry. It all started back in March and it has been a long journey. Let me share a bit of the story with you...

On my way to lunch one day I was suddenly struck with a thought. I had been thinking about how I could get more involved with helping people. I knew there are tons of needs in the world, but I really didn't know where to start. So the thought came to me: What if there was a place that  had lots of information about different ways to get involved and stories of what others are doing to make a difference? That night I started bouncing ideas off of my husband, but it was very clear that I couldn't tackle such a big project by myself. Nevertheless, I told God that I would obey (despite my inadequacies) if He called me to do it. Not a week later I get an email from a girl who has the same vision. Soon there are 3 of us working on this project.

Now it has come to life. So please take a minute to go check out Compassion's Cry and see what it's all about! Tell us what you think about the first post over there! Is this kind of thing needed? How might you get involved?

This looks really great! No really! I can't wait to see it develop. Are you hoping to cover a host of issues on this blog or zero in to a specific cause? A host of issues will take a lot of organization or else things could easily get lost or cluttered. But I do think it's doable. The layout of the website is attractive and pretty easy to navigate thus far. I like the concept of a featured activist and featured organization -- I think that while you're showing the world's cries for help and problems, it's important to also show hope and that there is a movement out there that is starting to meet needs. Resources for people to get involved are going to be SUPER important. People will see this, their heart will be tugged, and they're going to want to know, "What can I do?!" Therefore, I think a resource page with ways to get involved over the various issues you cover is going to be VERY important. Awareness is the foundation, a call to action is next, and then people need to know HOW to move into that action. I love it and I'm going to be following it faithfully!

A huge task and a great God to accomplish it. Awesome how God is using you. We all need to ask ourselves what He wants for us.

What amazing vision you have, Jennifer! Such a huge step of faith. I know that He will enlarge your territory through the little seed that you have planted. So exciting!
I love the worship section you've included. Do you know the song Albertine by Brooke Fraser? She wrote it about a little girl she met in Africa. Such a beautiful message.
God bless you!

I love it! I actually started a blog similar to your idea but I didn't have time at the moment to really invest since I was wedding planning at the time. It is so neat to see you've done this and I really hope I can help and be involved. Looking forward to really checking it out when I have better internet. :) Praying for this movement!
