Too Small To Ignore

Yesterday the President and CEO of Compassion Wes Stafford spoke to the entire organization about his new book Too Small to Ignore: Why Children are the Next Big Thing published by Waterbrook Press.

The book is a wakeup call that brings home the message that children matter and that those who have the power (which ultimately includes all of us) should use that power to be the voice for improverished children around the world. Wes grew up in rural west Africa (Ivory Coast) as the son of missionaries and lived among the people that Compassion now serves. He has a unique insight into the problem and the face of poverty that he also shares in the book in recounting some of his journey.

The book will hit stores October 18th but you can preorder from the link above.
