Hello Faith Promise Family,
I want to make you aware of a life-changing opportunity that is coming to our Pellissippi Campus on July 20-22. Change the Story: The Compassion Experience is a brand new interactive walkthrough tour designed to educate people about the lives of the more than 1.3 million children Compassion International serves globally. Faith Promise has the honor of hosting the first stop on the tour which will travel to over 35 towns and 65,000 miles across the United States during the next year.
Change the Story is housed in two trailers totaling 3,500 square feet that feature replicas of the homes of three Compassion International beneficiaries who live in extreme poverty on three separate continents. During the 20 minute tour, you will be able to fully experience the despair of poverty as you are immersed in littered streets and the sounds of insecurity that surround the closet-sized dwellings. This experience will bring you as close as possible to the realities of children whose households survive on less than $1 per day.
There will also be an experience more suited for participation by younger children. For more information or to reserve your tour time, please click here.
Compassion International is the world’s largest Christian child development organization that has been working since 1952 to tackle global poverty one child at a time. Compassion works through the local church to help meet the individual physical, economic, educational and spiritual needs of children – enabling them to thrive, not just survive.
I am so excited that Faith Promise is able to participate in the Change the Story tour. God has been raising the awareness of many churches to the condition of the poor and hungry around the world. We really can make a difference. This experience will change hearts and minds. Whatever you do, don’t miss it!
