Thunder Learns About Compassion International

Posted on Monday, March 3rd, 2014 at 8:14 pm

Hello Cool Cats!

Thunder spent the day with me at Compassion International.  Compassion is a large not-for-profit organization whose mission is to release children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.  Compassion provides services that help more than 1.2 million children in 26 countries.  The countries where Compassion provides services are often defined as developing countries and they are generally nations with a lower living standard, underdeveloped industrial base, and low Human Development Index relative to other countries.

My job title is Enterprise Architecture Director – that’s a fancy title for someone who is responsible for helping analyze business processes and ensuring that information is collected that helps us accomplish our mission.  I work in the suburbs and my office is very close to DCC.  While my job is focused on supporting children who live all around the world, it also requires that I work with people in our local community.  One of the most important things that our local community provides is high quality education.   At DCC, you are contributing to the education of children that will grow into adults, replace me, and do new things to help provide a quality education for children all around the world.

Please thank Thunder for visiting with me today.  It was nice to have a fuzzy friend work with me today.

I’ve attached a photo of Thunder next to one of the many pictures we have in our office.

Sincerely,

Brian Houghtaling
