Calvary Baptist Church is again hosting the Compassion Experience in Lake Havasu City from Nov. 1-4.
The event, by Compassion International, gives visitors a chance to see life for some children from a different perspective.
Visitors will be given headsets and invited on an audio-guided journey through wheelchair-accessible and kid-friendly exhibit space, featuring replicas of the homes and environments of real children who have grown up under the weight of extreme poverty. Guests will hear the child’s life story through headphones, as told by professional voice actors in an immersive experience.
The stories featured are all true and told with permission and direction from the Compassion-sponsored children who lived them.There will be two different stories that you can walk through and hear what it is like for a child in a different country. It takes about 20 minutes to go through one experience. At the end of the tour, guests will have an opportunity to sponsor a child.
The Compassion Experience at Calvary Baptist Church will be open 8 hours a day, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 4.
