About the Author
David Chalmers was born in 1981 in the city of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia, and is the eldest son of a Pastor and a teacher. He is a Primary school teacher and has taught at several schools around Victoria, sharing his passion for music and sport. David has also spent time as a musician, statistician, website administrator, amateur sports journalist and basketball coach, and is a doting uncle to three nephews and two nieces. Having grown up in a Christian home, David committed his life to Jesus in 2001 at age 20 and hasn’t looked back. He has served in several churches, leading worship, communion, preaching, kid’s ministry and playing bass guitar and drums. David started sponsoring with Compassion International in 2006, and over the last eight years God captured his heart so fully with His love for the poor, he financially sponsored 55 children and visited 31 of them in 12 countries.

This is not an "everything is always wonderful all the time,' account, but Chalmers is honest about the visits that did not go as he had hoped, the kids who did not rush happily into his arms, but were standoffish, but the positive things that came out of those visits as well. Chalmers has the advantage of being able to share his musical talents (which I do not have) and the energy to play a game of soccer with the kids and so can turn lemons into lemonade.
However, most of his visits were positive and I think that for anyone who is considering a visit, this is a valuable read to see if you are prepared for the disappointing as well as the positive.
It's also a good read for anyone who has ever considered sponsoring a child, to see how the donation of a small amount of money a month can literally change the life of a child, and his/her family
