Today, we did what I (Mel) was hoping to do almost since we left on this trip. We made a video tour of our motorhome. Not just any video tour, but one that’s also educational with what is near and dear to my heart. If you don’t know, I’m a volunteer Child Ambassador with World Vision. I get to talk and share about the amazing work WV is doing around the world to help children and communities living in extreme poverty overcome their challenges and become a thriving, self-sustaining community that is a safe place for all children to grow! I’ve been active in my volunteer role at home but have been wondering how this role will play out while traveling this year. Cue the video! The whole family is involved in it and we had so much fun making it! Enjoy!
Here is a close up of each of the kids waiting for sponsorship. Sponsoring a child is $39/month. For just a little more than a dollar a day you can completely change the life of one of these children along with their family and community. I have been to the field in Rwanda and Uganda and I can tell you with complete confidence that World Vision’s approach and model to solving the puzzle of poverty is holistic and it works! Connect with me if your heart is open to sponsoring one of these sweet kiddos! You can also go to this link to choose a child by birthdate, country, and/or gender. https://www.worldvision.org/sponsor-a-child?campaign=316014201
I’d love to get you started on a beautiful relationship with a child and their family. You will find that they will bless you as much (if not more!) as you bless them!
