Stories of Compassion: Ecuador’s 100,000th Child

Ecuador’s 100,000th Child

Dominic is a charismatic four-year old boy and officially the 100,000th child in the Compassion Ecuador program! Thanks to his sponsors generosity, little Dominic is able to escape the grasp of debilitating poverty and grow up to be whoever he wants to be.


Each week, Dominic dreams up a new career. Sometimes he wants to be a policeman, sometimes a firefighter, doctor, or even the pastor of his church.

But this time, he chose a tastier option:

“I want to be the man who sells ice cream on the street, because I would like to eat ice cream every day!”

Praise God for this boy’s innocence and may the Lord watch over Dominic as he grows. Be a sponsor to a child in need and give a child hope for their future!

Proverbs 22:6 ESV 

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
