We can write $\xi(t)$ as $$\xi(t)=\sum_{k=1}^{N(t)} \xi_k$$ where $\{N(t)\}_{t\in\mathbb{R}}$ is a counting Poisson process with rate $\lambda$. It is not specified in your question but I assume that $\lambda>0$ otherwise we would have $N(t)=0$ for all $t$ and thus $\xi(t)=0$ which contradicts what we are trying to prove. I am also going to assume that ...
