Are you ready for this email? There are so many incredible things to share with you!

First, beginning today four of our bloggers will be in Nicaragua. Welcome to the summer 2013 Blog Trip!

This is a week dedicated to spreading the news about children in poverty.

Our bloggers in Nicaragua will be blogging daily about what they experience. The stories they hear. The children they interact with. The ministry of Compassion.

We need you to join in this effort too! Come alongside the bloggers in Nicaragua and help them bring light to what life is like for children in poverty in Nicaragua.


This week follow the bloggers. In response to their posts, write a post of your own.

Be sure to announce the trip and ask your readers to follow along.

Join the link-up over on our blog to share your post.

Even though you are not on the trip, you are still a Compassion Blogger! We have been so impressed by this network. Your posts, your consistency, the number of children you’ve gotten sponsored. You are blowing us away and we would be so honored to have you join this trip through your own posts.

A Contest and Prize Package

We’d also like to invite you to join in our blog trip contest. There is a prize package to be had, and we are giving away three of them. It is so easy to get your name entered in the drawing.

Here is a little sneak peak at the package. Can you guess what it is?


Twitter Party

This Thursday night at 9:00pm EST Compassion and Resourceful Mommy will host a Twitter party and all of us in Nicaragua, including the trip bloggers, will take part!

Don’t miss it! This is your chance to chat with the bloggers, ask how they are doing and get your questions answered directly by them.

We will also announce the winners of our contest during the chat!

Be sure to follow #CompassionBloggers on Twitter to join the Twitter party conversation.


Please pray for safety, health and lively hearts and minds each day during this trip. Pray for the children we’ll meet, that we can truly show them the light and love of Jesus.

Thank you for joining this network. Thank you for helping release children from poverty in Jesus’ name through your blog.

It’s blogging time!

Note: If you are not a Compassion Blogger, you can sign-up to receive these assignments via email. It’s super easy.
