I’m exited today to a part of something big: a Blog Tour for Shaun Groves and his new album Third World Symphony.

1st World – Meet 3rd World

Earlier this year I was invited to go with Samaritian’s Purse to Haiti to distribute Operation Christmas Child boxes. This was my first 3rd world moment. I’ve done missions trips with church in the town next door, but have never left my comfort zone and entered what appeared to be a war zone.

Haiti was incredible and life changing for me. From the moment we got out of the airport pretty much all we saw are tents. The earthquake in Haiti made millions of people homeless in seconds and most of those people remain homeless now.

We saw churches that had been destroyed and mass graves, now covered up, holding hundreds of thousands of dead.

I left Haiti thankful for everything that we have, down to the simple things like safe water (and hot showers). Mostly though I wasn’t left with a list of what I have that they didn’t, I was instead left with a list of so many qualities that I saw in these people that we don’t have. These kids are content with an old motor oil bottle with bottle caps as wheels for a toy, where my kids are constantly telling me they are bored in a roomful of toys. Or the wife who is proud of her shelter (tent) and eager to show off the entire one room house and I am embarrassed to show you my messy front hallway.

Today I want to introduce you to someone who was given a very similar experience in realizing how much a 3rd world country can teach us “1st worlders”. Shaun Groves has been a partner with Compassion International for a number of years, sharing across the U.S. the poverty and needs of children and families in other countries.

Shaun recently released a new CD called Third World Symphony that is awesome. Listen to his story behind the CD:

Shaun Groves – Third World Symphony (Ethiopia Story) from Shaun Groves on Vimeo.

Today only while Shaun spends the day with us, he is offering 50% off the physical CD.  Plus each order donates $1 to a Compassion International Fund of your choice: Clean Water, Disaster Relief or Africa Famine Relief.

To grab your own copy of the CD, head over here and use code southernsavers to get the CD for $5.  This is only good today and will end tonight when the clock strikes midnight. (Note: this is only for the physical CD not for iTunes.)

You can even listen to the album first:

This whole blog tour is actually a lot of fun, but to experience the whole effect take a look at the other blog stops (Shaun has hit some of my favorites in the past two weeks).

      Type the code in yourself instead of copying/pasting it. That’s the only way I could get it to work.

      Awesome!  Thanks for being part of such an awesome blog tour and for sharing your story, Jenny!  Shaun, thanks for your music and your ministry.  I was cheking out your website as well as the other blog stops and have been truly inspired.  Thanks for giving me a beautiful picture of Christ this morning.  What a blessing.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts from the Haiti experience. My 15-year-old son and I had the opportunity to join with 11 other friends on mission to the Paillant region (on the southern peninsula, a couple hours drive from Port-Au-Prince, and it was absolutely life-changing. Our hearts are knit with the people there and we’re learning Creole for our return trip in a few months. Thanks again and thanks to Shaun for living a musical life that’s far bigger than royalties and merch tables…..

      Amazing offer,I just got a $827.89 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use Gr?bPenny.?om

      Thank you!  I grew up as an MK in a third world country, came to the states as a 15 yr old…America was such a shock to me!  Jenny’s post and Shaun’s music touches my heart deeply….thank you for your ministry!

      AWESOME!!!

      I leave October 22nd for a mission trip to Guatemala.  I will get me a copy of this CD and share with my fellow team mates.  I am particularly fond of Guatemala because I have two daughters that were born there.  When I walk through the streets of Guatemala, I see the faces of my extended family.

    • What an awesome story to share. It’s so true that so many of us have things that we take for granted, but then you see someone that has so little, yet they are rich in other ways.

      For some reason I thought the music would be actual music from Ethiopia until I listened to it. Thanks for info!

    • Aww I was *this* close to buying it, but he doesn’t take paypal. :(

    • Just placed my order! Thank you! I was excited for this anyway- but even more so now that I’ve heard the story behind it. I can’t wait to add this to the Shaun collection I started in 2001 with Invitation to Eavesdrop- all the CD’s have been such a blessing to not only myself, but everyone I have let listen to them. Thank you and GOD BLESS!
