[Bolivia bloggers] Day 3: Meeting sponsored children + vlog

Ever wondered whether or not the child in the photo you received in your sponsorship welcome packet is really a real child? No need to be curious anymore, we've got proof!

Yesterday was one of the sweetest days I've ever experienced. Our first day in a World Vision area development program (ADP), we knew we would be exposed to so much of the work World Vision is doing there. And at the top of that list? Meeting sponsored children.

More posts from Elizabeth, Matthew, Deb, Nish, and I on "meeting our sponsored children" soon... And don't miss our vlog from Erika and Andrea at the bottom of this post!

Sponsor a child in Bolivia


    Lovely to hear straight from Bolivia, where my sponsored child, Milton, lives. We are so happy to be part of his life, education and development and to help his family and community in this way. God bless you all.

    I know and understand the impact of World Vision through information shared by staff in the U.S., CA conference calls etc. The blogging and videos from Bolivia have amplified my understanding of the impact of child sponsorship and the joy of seeing lives and communities transformed. Bolivia bloggers has been one of the motivating factors in our working to see more children sponsored. Lord willing, one day, Celeste and I will be able to see one of our children also. (I'm jealous!)

    I just spent 11 days in Santa Cruz Bolivia and the kids absolutley steal your heart!
