Global Mission Update: January 2018

Written by Kristen Goodin

2017 has been an exciting year here at PHOS: we’ve changed our name, remodeled our studio, welcomed new team members, expanded our services, and much more.

PHOS is the Greek word for light, and it encompasses what we do here every day: empowering our clients to stand out and be a light in a saturated digital space.

PHOS also has another meaning in Greek: divine illumination to reveal and impart life, through Christ. Our Global Mission testifies to this meaning, by providing hope and instilling the love of Christ to impoverished children throughout the world.

Every year, we take time to reflect on all the blessings we’ve received as an organization, and how, through those blessings, we’re able to bless others. Thank you for being a part of our mission.

Compassion International: Freedom From Poverty

Compassion International is a worldwide organization that serves as advocates for children, in Jesus’ name. Throughout the world, with the help of sponsors, they are changing the lives of children who have experienced true poverty.

These children live in some of the most dangerous, volatile regions throughout the world. Some are at risk of exploitation and abuse, while others are exposed to life-threatening disease on a daily basis.

A release from poverty is literally a new lease on life for these children and their families.

Three New Children Welcomed to Our Family

Last year, we sponsored two children through Compassion International. This year, we’re excited to sponsor three more children and extend our blessings to those in need around the world:

Josiane Iradukunda

Josiane is a 4-year-old little girl from a village in Rwanda. We have been sponsoring her since March 2017. She enjoys playing “little ball” and hopes to be a doctor someday and dreams of treating and healing children.

Maria Paula Jaimes Conde

Maria is 6 years old. She’s in Kindergarten in the mountainous community of Nuevo Horizonte, Colombia. She attends Sunday School and helps her family with cleaning and making beds. We began sponsoring Maria in June 2017.

Julio Miguel Parada Criado

Julio is 6 years old. He’s in Kindergarten in Villa de Chicacao, 30 km northeast of Mazatenango, Guatemala. He’s a big soccer fan, enjoys running, and even enjoys art – it’s his favorite subject in school. We began sponsoring Julio in October 2017.

Shine a Light With Us

We are proud to be sponsors through Compassion International, and if you’ve been inspired to be a part of this great cause, we encourage you to learn more about sponsorship and perhaps sponsor a child of your own.

Sponsor a Child

We continue to be humbled by how we are able to support these children around the world. In 2018, we look forward to expanding our support even further: both at home and abroad. We’re incredibly grateful to partner with our clients and our team to make a such a positive impact on the world as we continue to fulfill our Global Mission.

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.
