[Sri Lanka Bloggers] An invitation and challenge to Theoblogy readers

Tony Jones has built a community of readers who discuss faith and theology on his blog, Theoblogy. But as Tony prepares to head to Sri Lanka with World Vision, he has a new challenge for his readers: to move beyond discussion and into action.

Read on to learn how Tony has invited his readers into the Sri Lanka journey.

As I announced recently, I’m going to Sri Lanka next month with World Vision. It will be a trip both exciting and sobering, as I join a half-dozen bloggers to see the work that World Vision is doing among the desperately poor.

Among World Vision’s most successful programs is its child sponsorship program. I last sponsored a child from 2005-2007 in Peru, and I had the great privilege of meeting that child during a trip there.

Yesterday, I took the plunge again, sponsoring Afra in Sri Lanka. For $35 per month, Courtney and I will be sponsoring education and wellness programs in her village. She is one week older than my youngest child, so charting her development as a young woman will be fun for all of us.

I’d like you to join me.

Sponsor a child in Sri Lanka

The Sri Lanka bloggers team is just days away from starting this adventure. Please follow along as we begin our travels -- and keep sharing your questions with us!

Join our journey by sponsoring a child in Sri Lanka today. Your support and commitment will help provide a child in need with life-giving basics like nutritious food, clean water, medical care, education, and more -- plus the knowledge that he or she is loved and cared for.
