The push to investigate the gruesome tactics of #PlannedParenthood is so important. That's why I've joined the call to have Attorney General Loretta Lynch appoint an independent counsel to investigate this potential criminal activity.
From our founding to today, faith has motivated Americans to help others, advocate for change, and aspire for a world where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. I am so proud to represent a district where so many individuals and organizations show this truth every day. One such organization is Compassion International Founded in 1952, and headquartered in Colorado Springs since 1980, Compassion International has dedicated itself to “releasing children from poverty in Jesus' name.” Through their Christian child development through sponsorship ministry, Compassion International serves more than 1,700,000 children in 26 countries throughout the world. The Compassion Child Development Model works to meet the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of children living in poverty. Independent research has shown that children in Compassion’s program were more likely to finish secondary education, attend university, become community and/or church leaders and are more likely to have salaried jobs as adults…compared to their peers who did not participate in Compassion’s program. Compassion children influence their own families, churches, communities and nations. Today, let us join together to recognize Compassion's hard work and faithful acts of service. Let’s #FaithitForward. Compassion International is one of the many organizations throughout our community and across the nation whose ministry and work has made a profound impact on countless lives. Do you have a story to tell? If so, you can join with us in sharing the selfless work that people of faith are carrying out each and every day.
