World Vision Child Ambassadors are called and compelled to be a voice for vulnerable children. I connect people from our own communities with children living in extreme poverty to forever change their world through sponsorship. I am a believer, defender, and champion for children.
I believe we can change the world one child, family, and community at a time. I believe child sponsorship through World Vision is one of the most effective ways of doing it. I also believe the local church can and should have a global impact not only because it is our moral imperative, but because our Lord and His Gospel demands it.
