KSBJ Listeners and Buddy The KSBJ Prayer Bear™ Partner with Compassion International to Sponsor Children in Africa

HOUSTON, Texas (March 4, 2020) – For children in impoverished Mombasa, Africa, a visit from an international ministry is something they eagerly anticipate. During a trip last month with Compassion International and KSBJ, these children experienced something they never had before – fun and games with a large mascot of a bear. A group from 89.3 KSBJ, including President/CEO Joe Paulo, two on-air DJs, and Buddy the KSBJ Prayer Bear™, joined Compassion International for a trip to Mombasa, Kenya, from February 5th – 13th, learning about the needs and challenges of children and families there.


The children were particularly fascinated by Buddy, who taught the children how to pray, danced, and played with them. The children followed Buddy everywhere.


KSBJ staff attended school and church, made home visits, talked and prayed with families in preparation for a two-day on-air appeal back home. The appeal asks KSBJ listeners to help fight poverty in Kenya by sponsoring children through Compassion International.


On March 4th and 5th, 2020, KSBJ will share stories of need and hope from Mombasa with the goal of facilitating the sponsorship of 1,000 children. For just $38, sponsors can ensure a child living in poverty gets connected with a church-based educational program, providing meals, medical check-ups, mentoring and more.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
