Rejoice and be glad, for God has done great things!

Today we celebrate God's faithfulness, your generosity, and the
amazing work your gifts have enabled over the last quarter. From
offering famine relief in Nigeria and across the Horn of Africa, to
supporting refugees and displaced persons, to providing economic
opportunities for women and girls, to rebuilding homes destroyed
by floods and tornadoes in the United States, Week of Compassion
partners continue to make a difference in the world.

Below, you will find the 2017 Second Quarter Report as well as
information about how to connect with Week of Compassion and
our partners at the 2017 General Assembly in Indianapolis, IN.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY
Throughout the Assembly, Week of Compassion staff and committee members (present and former) will be at our booth in the exhibit hall. Several of our partners will also have representatives in the booth, with some great stories to share! Come by and hear about the ways we are present for our neighbors near and far!

We hope to see you, also, at the Week of Compassion breakfast on Tuesday morning, with special guest Laila Alawa. Ms. Alawa is the founder and CEO of The Tempest and also works in public relations and social media branding for NuDay Syria, a non-profit organization bringing humanitarian aid to people in Syria and the surrounding countries displaced by the ongoing civil war. On-site tickets for the breakfast will be limited; buy your ticket in advance here.
