Thank you, Lisa Leonard [photo album]

So you know we’re in Bolivia. You know we’re blogging. You know we’re meeting sponsored children. You know we’re hoping you also make the decision to sponsor a child in Bolivia.

Here’s something you should also know: The first 150 people who sponsor a child in Bolivia through our blogs this week will also get a special “Bolivia bloggers” edition necklace thanks to our sweet and talented friend Lisa Leonard. Lisa’s handmade jewelry design company donated these to our trip to support our team and child sponsorship in Bolivia. (Of course, we wish you were here with us, Lisa!)

And when you sponsor a child in Bolivia and get this necklace, know that someone special in a World Vision community in Bolivia is wearing the necklace, too -- maybe a necklace is around the neck of one of these beautiful people we've met on our trip.

    I like the way our World Vision Organization strongly trying to avail basic services to the destitutes all over the whole world.
    Congratulations!

    Thank you so much for all that you do...for having a loving heart...for having a way to share your stories! I work for World Vision and sponsor 3 kids myself, Congo, Malawi and Sri Lanka. You truly are a blessing!

    Thanking God for your decision, Carol. Much more to come and to experience as a child sponsor and we're praying it impacts you the way it has us.

    I just sponsored a little girl in Bolivia! She is my 3rd sponsor child. It brings such joy to my heart!

    That makes two of us (and many others) who sponsor a child in Bolivia -- that makes us kind of like family in my book, Jaime :) -Lindsey, WV staff

    Thank you all so much for all your hard work. We were moved to sponsor a second child lastnight. We are excited to welcome Jose from Bolivia as part of our family.

    Did you meet Jhon Dennis Sandivar Montano in Colomi Unete? We have sponsored him since last fall. He is 6 now.

    We met so many beautiful children that I wouldn't be able to say for sure whether or not we met Jhon. But I can say that the ADP staff in Colomi have a love for children like I've never seen and he is in great, great hands.

    I was visiting my parents on vacation, when I heard they sponsored a child in Albania...I have been wanting to do this for awhile and chose Bolivia, and am proud to be sponsoring Bertha in Colomi...I have been thinking and praying for this little girl, her home, family and community and those who work with her.. I'm home now, found this blog and am thrilled to see that you folks were there at the very time I was beginning this journey with WV. Thank you for the reassurance of love and support for the Colomi children...bless all of you for your work.

    This is so Cool. I have sponsored a little girl in Haiti for 2 years and I think she would love one of these. (Even though Spanish is neither of ours primary language).
