COLFAX, NC, November 27, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- More than 700 million people in developing countries live on less than $1.90 per day, facing challenges most Americans never will. Compassion International's The Compassion Experience is making a four-day stop in the Colfax area December 8-11 and will bring visitors on a journey into the lives of two Compassion-sponsored children living in the Philippines and the Dominican Republic. The event will be hosted by Shady Grove Wesleyan Church at 119 North Bunker Hill Road in Colfax.
A self-guided tour will immerse visitors in the lives of the children. Through the use of an iPod, a headset and 1,700 square feet of interactive space, visitors will see the children's homes, walk through schools and markets, and hear life-changing stories of hope--all from the perspective of a child whose life began in poverty. This free event is appropriate for all ages and is an excellent opportunity for anyone who has never had the chance to travel outside the U.S. to get a small glimpse of what life can be like in developing countries.
Visitors are encouraged to make a reservation, however walk-ins are welcome. Groups of 20 or more should email email@example.com to reserve their space.
