Compassion Sunday 2018

The year 2017 has been dominated by

unprecedented natural disasters and extreme weather events both in the United States and around the globe.

February 25th, 2018

The year 2017 has been dominated by unprecedented natural disasters and extreme weather events both in the United States and around the globe. We have wept, prayed, donated, and done whatever else we could to help family, friends, churches, missionaries, and fellow Apostolics who are suffering heartbreak and loss. Our most recent projects have been in response to the violent hurricanes that have swept through the U.S. and the Caribbean. 


Through the ministry of Compassion Services International, the physical and monetary gifts, combined with countless volunteer hours spent sorting supplies, loading boxes, and delivering water, food and other aid have made a difference in the areas hit hardest by the recent tragedies. It’s obvious, however, that our hands alone are not enough. The work still to be done is overwhelming non-profit and governmental resources. The recovery in many of the island areas of the Caribbean will take great effort and time. 


Your support of Compassion Services International is important. We are continuing to partner with missionaries, local congregations and the communities in the hurricane disaster areas. The CSI Medical Missions Team completed a successful round of clinics providing medical aid to Puerto Rico in November. Here in the mainland U.S., pastors and churches are still collecting supplies that are being delivered through miraculous developments with shipping partners. Yet, through all of this one can sense that the need and the cry for help is not just physical or material. We must remember that during times of great crisis people often recognize their greatest need – their need for eternal salvation. There is a great battle for the souls of men, and that is why it is so important that we keep working and never give up.


This year, Compassion Sunday is February 25, 2018. This is a designated, yearly focus designed to raise awareness and funds for Compassion Services International. Originally started as a humanitarian ministry by UPCI Global Missions, CSI is now a separate nonprofit corporation and recognized as tax-exempt under IRS Section 501(c)(3) of the IRC. Though a separate corporate entity, CSI is an endorsed project of the UPCI, and churches and individuals that give offerings and donations to CSI’s international relief efforts can receive direct offering credit from UPCI Global Missions. The funds raised on Compassion Sunday enable CSI to continue meeting the needs of areas affected by natural disasters, as well as, prepare teams to be ready to respond when a disaster strikes around the world.
