Waiting Child ~ Compassion International

Orestes is no longer on the Compassion waiting children list!  I am hopeful that means he has been sponsored.  :)

This week we are praying for Orestes, from Indonesia.  He is 8 years old and has been waiting about 260 days for a sponsor.


In his home, Orestes helps by caring for children and running errands. He lives with his father and his mother. His father is employed as a farmer and his mother maintains the home. There are 2 children in the family.

Playing with cars and running are Orestes's favorite activities. In primary school his performance is average and he also regularly attends church activities and Bible class.

If you are interested in learning more about Orestes, or in sponsoring him through Compassion International, you can click here.

Children in the Compassion sponsorship programs recieve an education, academic and in hygeine/health/nutrition, they recieve medical care and the gospel of Jesus Christ.  It is always my prayer that the light shined upon these children at the project sites will be carried home with them, and that light might shine on all who in their home.  I pray each of their families will come to know Jesus as their Saviour, and discover the hope that helps them step out of extreme poverty.
