Scripture says that God uses foolish things of the world to confound the wise, and the weakest among us to show His strength. Join us as we introduce you to a man who, although deeply wounded as a child, is now helping to restore the lives of thousands of neglected boys and girls around the globe. It’s an up-close meeting with Dr. Wess Stafford, President of Compassion International.
Dr. Wess Stafford, President of Compassion International, is an internationally recognized advocate for children in poverty. His daily radio feature, Speak Up With Compassion®, is heard on nearly 600 radio stations in the United States. As a boy, the son of missionaries to the Ivory Coast, Wess was one of the village children watched over by a wise and loving African "extended family." But his young heart was often broken when African friends died from the cruel ravages of poverty. Wess feels privileged to continue his parents' commitment to the poor and to now minister to those who have always been so close to his heart.
