When Invisible Children Sing

When Invisible Children Sing

Author(s): Dr Chi Huang

Location(s): La Paz

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs

Era(s): Contemporary

Expecting to treat some mildly ill children from the streets of Bolivia on a quick “service trip,” an idealistic young medical student gets more than he bargained for when he takes a year off from Harvard Medical School to work at an orphanage in La Paz.

As he comes to know the children and sees how they live, Chi Huang is drawn deeper and deeper into their complex and desperate lives.

The doctor soon realizes that to truly help these children, he will have to follow the example of Jesus: live among them, love them in spite of their brokenness, and cling to his faith in God’s goodness, even when it appears it is nowhere to be found.

A true story that will inspire and challenge readers to greater faith and action.
