Our sponsorship journey with World Vision began on October 30, 2011, Tony Campolo brought the crowd to its feet at The Meeting House. His challenge was clear: How are you making a difference in someone else’s life? Campolo’s visit marked the beginning of an emerging partnership between The Meeting House and World Vision Canada. After that Sunday, people from The Meeting House sponsored 1,016 children – all in the same community of Mposa, Malawi. In 2012, we sponsored another 300 children.
Our partnership continues to grow as we begin to sponsor children from Chamba (located in the same region of Malawi as Mposa). We look forward to connecitng ourselves to many more children and families in Malawi through World Vision's sponsorship program. Our goal this year is to sponsor hundreds of more children!
In addition to funding life-changing initiatives, part of our Transform goals is to invest relationally – reach out and become personally invested in the lives and hearts of others. Here are three ways you can intentionally connect with your sponsor child:
Prayer is an essential way to support the Mposa and Chamba communities. Pray for the physical and spiritual needs of your sponsor child, their family, the community leaders, and World Vision workers.
Did you know that receiving a simple written letter can be one of the most special days in the life of your sponsored child? World Vision has provided simple and effective ways to build a friendship with your sponsor child and their family.

Here are some tips to writing a great letter to your child and mailing addresses of World Vision offices around the world.
- The Meeting House is working with World Vision to coordinate a learning trip each summer for sponsors from The Meeting House to visit Mposa and Chamba. This trip will give us a great opportunity to learn about World Vision, build relationships with families in Malawi and worship with our BIC family. Applications for the summer 2014 trips will be available on December 1, 2013. You can find the application here.
