For World Radio Day today, Arik Korman – Executive Director of The Bob Rivers Show on 95.7 KJR-FM in Seattle – writes about how his son AJ has grown up with sponsored children in his family, which has inspired AJ to want to help! The Bob Rivers Show is a long-time partner of World Vision, and has helped to connect more than 4,700 children around the world with sponsors.
Leaving your child behind when you travel to the other side of the world is tough on a parent. You want to lend your hand to help families in need, but at the same time you know you’re taking a calculated risk.
I have been blessed to have journeyed with World Vision to developing countries eight times, the last three as a father to my 4-year-old son, AJ.
