Book Review

I just recently finished reading the book “Too Small To Ignore: Why Children Are The Next Big Thing” By Dr. Wes Stafford. Wes Stafford is the president and CEO of Compassion International. I have been familiar with Compassion International for quite a few years now, but it was just within the past 2 years that I have gotten to know a little bit about its great leader Wes Stafford. About a year and a half ago I heard Dr. Stafford give an awesome talk on why ministry to children not only in the U.S. but throughout the world is so important. It was after hearing this talk that I really wanted to read his book. Too Small To Ignore is a great book…here’s your very quick summary…he spent the first 14 years of his life between a remote African village where his parents were missionaries and a boarding school for Missionary kids many hundreds of miles away (still in Africa). His upbringing gives him a very unique and passionate perspective about caring for the children of the world especially those who live in poverty or suffer from abuse or neglect.

Great Book! But also difficult to read at times to hear of the immense suffering that goes on in the world, but Wes and Compassion International have a plan. They believe that the way to end the suffering is to begin with the children in these regions. To change the world you begin with a child.

First Book I’ve read completely in 2009, hope to get to another one before July 4th.
