Go Into All The World
One Man's Journey With God and Compassion International
"I have the honor of having a sponsor like you; you are one of my best examples to follow...when I read the letters you sent to me it is as if I were close to you; I am happy, like with your presence in my humble home. I will never forget that day you were with me. When I write letters to you I get inspired because I imagine you with me. I don't know how, but it is like magic writing these words because I do not say them, my heart says them, and with lots of love..."
These are real words, written by a real child. They may be directed at one particular person, but they are echoed in the hearts of over a million other children all around the world who are sponsored through Compassion International.
Over the last seven years God has taken David Chalmers, an Australian Compassion sponsor, advocate and traveler on an incredible journey. You're invited to join him in his travels to twelve countries in the developing world where you will meet his sponsored children and families, experience their homes and communities, and hear their stories of heartbreak and brokenness. Then step inside the gates of the local Compassion Project where it is a different story altogether. Love, Joy, Faith, Hope, Peace, Sacrifice, Generosity, Hospitality, Safety, Music, Dancing, Playing. The love of God is in these places.
As we look around at the many needs of our broken world, it is very easy to switch off and become overwhelmed. If you dare to come on the adventure contained in the pages of this book, you will see that through sponsorship with Compassion International one person can truly make a difference in the life of a child, and that as long as a community has a Compassion Project taking care of the children there is HOPE in Jesus name.
