A group of several bloggers are on a trip to Kolkata, India, right now. Each day they are visiting projects run by Compassion International–meeting kids, discovering hope in the midst of poverty, taking pictures, and telling their stories on their blogs. It’s probably the closest we can come to being there without actually taking that 16 hour flight and enduring the 120 degree heat.
I have not been overseas with Compassion (yet) but I love reading these stories. It helps gain a little more of a world perspective instead of being stuck in my American bubble and realize that there is both great need and much hope. Check out the Compassion Bloggers site and take a little trip to India this week.
