The Compassion Experience comes to Alachua

ALACHUA, Fla.(WCJB)-- "The Compassion Experience," put on by Compassion International, has arrived at Canvas Church in Alachua for the weekend.

Participants take self-guided tours that tell stories of three different people who grew up in poverty, and how they got involved with compassion international. The tour takes participants through Guatemala, Uganda and the Philippines, and is narrated through a headset by the person whose story is being told.

Each participant then has the opportunity to sponsor a child living in an impoverished country.
