About the Author

Sarah Corson is a responder to the needs of the poor around the globe.
When the Corsons returned from Bolivia, they knew they had to do something more in response to the experiences that Sarah has written about in this book. Others joined them in 1979 to help establish SIFAT (Servants in Faith and Technology). SIFAT is approved as an Advance Special of the United Methodist Church, and is interdenominational in service, board of directors, staff, and those who participate in the programs. Located in Lineville, Alabama, it is a center to train Christian leaders to empower their communities to develop spiritually and materially. SIFAT’s graduates have come from 87 countries to study appropriate technologies for solutions to basic human needs…such as

• water purification
• food production and preservation
• alternative energies
• microenterprise
• prevention of sickness and death in children
and much more...all in the context of the integrated Gospel.

The SIFAT campus has a realistic Global Village where they open a window on the world for literally thousands of American children and youth. There are week-long Learn and Serve mission camps and one-day camps in the CARES program. Many begin to understand why so many people are poor and how everyone can be a part of the solution to hunger and poverty. Hundreds of adults have gone on SIFAT teams to learn and to serve under SIFAT graduates in places like Bolivia, Ecuador, Uganda, and Zambia on short-term teams for long term development. SIFAT invites you to visit and to participate in training events, tours, youth camps or a team to make a real difference among some of the poorest people on our planet.
