Last week, over 50,000 students gathered for the annual 'Passion' conference. They worshipped, listen to Biblical preaching, and did something extraordinary: sponsored 7,000 kids across the globe through Compassion International, reports CBN.
“We believe worship and justice are two sides of the same coin and always want to be part of impacting the globe with justice, compassion, and the saving name of Jesus,” read a post published to the Passion Facebook page on Friday. “We set out to make history at #Passion2017 and [were] blown away when the attendees … sponsored 7,000 children.”
“All the children on the @Compassion waiting list in El Salvador, Rwanda, Tanzania and Indonesia have now been sponsored because of one gathering of Jesus people,” the post reads, noting that the team is also hoping to be able to cover all of the kids in Bolivia as well.
