Throughout the forty years, though, the Lord kept calling Al to Southeast Asia where he regularly traveled, serving the nations through building partnerships with trustworthy, national servant leaders. These experiences in Asia also exposed Al to the plague of poverty and human trafficking that is overwhelming Southeast Asia.
It was in response to this need, that Al launched Compassionate Hope Foundation in 2011.
Working with the national leaders whom he had known and served for years, Al has established a ministry rescuing and caring for hundreds of children in Thailand, Laos, and the Philippines.
Al Henson has a BS from the University of Tennessee and a Masters degree and Doctorate of Divinity from Liberty University. Al’s income is provided entirely through missionary support—he does not receive a salary from Compassionate Hope.
