Editor’s Note: Every summer, 20 university students enroll in our 10 1/2-week internship program for the opportunity to gain professional experience within Compassion. This is just one of the many experiences from their country trip to Guatemala.
During one of my first days as the Child Advocacy intern, I watched this video from former Compassion International President Wess Stafford.
Years back, Wess had a dream about Compassion reaching 1 million of the 400 million children who live in extreme poverty around the world. But he heard God’s voice saying to him, “Is that it? What about all the rest of them?” This is the moment in which Wess realized that it’s going to take everybody to accomplish this huge goal, and it’s why Compassion now serves as an advocate for all children in extreme poverty, those both inside and outside of our program.
