Friday night, I had the privilege of volunteering at a Compassion table at the Michael W. Smith concert in Tucson, Ariz.
It was my first time volunteering, and my son and good friend went with me. It was an awesome experience!
Five children were sponsored before the concert even began, and at the last count toward the end of the evening, 75 children had new sponsors.
It was a blessing to me to see the emotion in new sponsors’ faces as they took that step of faith and chose to change a child’s life. I knew the incredible journey they were about to experience, so it was easy to share that emotion with them.

Isn’t it so fun working at concerts? It’s so exciting seeing so many kids sponsored at once. I used to do it with my dad as a teen and it was so fun! It’s been a while since I have little ones now, but I hope to get back to volunteering eventually!!
We had a blast! I was surprised at how emotional it was to see people choose their child.
