Stan Walker Australian Idol At Compassion, we set aside one hour each Wednesday for spiritual refreshment through chapel, division devotions or prayer groups. Typically, chapel is the first and third Wednesday of each month, but this week, a unique opportunity presented itself and we had our chapel service on Tuesday, to accommodate a special guest.

Stan Walker, Australia’s 2009 Idol winner, came to Colorado Springs after his recent trip to Haiti with Compassion Australia. He shared about his faith journey, his experience on Australian Idol and his time in Haiti.

You can also view the Stan Walker Australian Idol video interview on Viddler.

After the interview ended, Stan sang several songs for us, which we didn’t include in the video above because copyright restrictions prevent us.

However, the video below gives you an idea of what we got to experience. “Amazing Grace” was the last song Stan sang for us. It’s powerful! Particularly when you know his story.

Going forward, it’s our intention to regularly share our chapel messages on the blog. But to give you as much flexibility as possible, we’ve also created an audio podcast of our chapel messages, which you can subscribe to via iTunes. Hope you enjoy them.

    AWESOME video… My faith has been uplifted. I have never heard such a testimony. I cannot thank you enough for putting this vidoe on my e-mail. God bless you and all you do. I had been thinking of stopping my Compassion committment. I am unemployed(which I never expected since I am a nurse), getting depressed, the increase in the cost, and my losing of faith in your organization all came together – NOT from God obviously. I stayed only because I can’t let my kids go. So until this video, I was only with you for the kids I sponsor. Now I am reminded of why I joined Compassion. Thank you again for praying at work. I have renewed faith in God and in you all as vessels of His love.
