If a child is thriving, everyone’s thriving.
That’s why sponsorship matters so much to me! When you sponsor a child through World Vision, you're not only personally showing God’s love to a child in need, you’re also investing in a proven way to help that child and their community stand tall, free from poverty.
Here's my story...
I have always had a heart for orphans and vulnerable children. At first I felt that adopting or fostering was the only way to serve these kids, BUT NOW I have seen how sponsorship PREVENTS orphans (and child marriage and child labor) by enabling families to care for their own. And truly, that is God’s better plan. (But I haven’t given up on adoption or foster care and I applaud all who sacrifice for God’s special calling for kids whose parents are unable to care for their kids for whatever reason.)
I have also participated in mission trips but have often felt incomplete afterwards. And due to COVID most mission TRIPS are IMPOSSIBLE right now (and potentially harmful to fragile communities) but MISSIONS are still POSSIBLE! Sponsorship enables ANYONE to create a HUGE impact without even leaving home. Or at least not venturing far! And the dollars you send give communities the resources to do for themselves what we often try to accomplish on our mission trips.
I have been blessed to visit several communities where World Vision is serving and I have even met one of my sponsored children. These have been some of the most amazing moments in my life! During those times I have been greatly impacted by the words of the MOTHERS on how grateful and joyful they are to see their children thriving simply because a stranger cared. I have so many stories I could share and I'd love to do that! Please contact me if you have any questions at all! And please take the step to sponsor a child! You won't regret it.
Hope For Honduras
Today, we also have an incredible opportunity happening right now in Honduras. For every child sponsored in Honduras this month, a very generous donor has agreed to match $250 of funds to provide clean water to five (5) children and family members in need. If you sponsor today, you can make an incredible impact in the life of a child through World Vision's child sponsorship ministry and also help communities receive the blessings of safe and sustainable clean water in Honduras.
