This week our family (and some good friends) had the opportunity to go to the Compassion Experience Tour presented by Compassion International.
This is a completely interactive, story-based exhibit put on my Compassion International. It is free and really worthwhile visiting if you have one close enough. In a nutshell, you walk through a simulation of a child’s life from another part of the world. These children face huge barriers and challenges in their lives and we walk through these right along with them as they tell their story through a headset/ipod that each visitor has in their hands. It is a true ‘living story’ experience, friends.
There are events coming up all over the United States so there are lots of opportunities to check it out with your children, family, or even homeschool group.
(There were so many homeschoolers there when we went on a Monday!)
I thought I would share our experience with you…
Yeah… I’m taking the photo – you’ll rarely find me in many photos… *wink* This is my husband with our three kids (Alex in blue, Audrey in stripes and Simon in grey long sleeve), and our two very good friends, Chantal and Ian.
