1 Volunteer: With the Poor in Peru  Thielman, Jeff; Schroth, Raymond A.
0809132435 / 9780809132430 Good.  
Paperback. Softcover 1991 Paulist Press. Superclean; no marks or creases; pages bright; binding tight; but last blank page has been neatly REMOVED. 112 pages; black-and-white photos. Language: English. 'Thielman, a member of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Peru just after his college graduation, and Schroth recount Thielman's experiences based upon the latter's journal. The story is challenging in its open account of the progression of Thielman's feelings, his failures, his successes, and his reluctance to return to the United States after his encounter with massive poverty and indifference to the desperation of the poor. He struggles to build the Working Children of Cristo Rey Center and discovers that he has become so task-oriented that he incorporates some of the bureaucratic attitudes he abhors. However, he succeeds in building the Center and leaves it in the hands of the empowered poor.'--Library Journal, 1991.
