  1. This woman’s story touched my heart. We sponsor a child through World Vision and I am always humbled by the pictures and letters sent to us from the child. But to see someone in person who is impacted by one of these agencies was rewarding and truly made me think about our sponsorship and what more we can do for the child.

  2. we are blessed to sponsor a Compassion child in India, but sometimes it’s hard to imagine there’s a real kid behind the ID#. this is *so* encouraging! great stuff!

  3. This story really touched my heart and tears of joy. I sponsor 6 children through Compassion and it is great to hear the results. Thank you for sharing her testimony.

  4. keep it up! you gave me hope in this life in facing all difficulties especially our situations in the philippines. I’m praying for you and to your mission.
