As part of our Transform mission, we've sent a new Africa Learning Team of five Meeting Housers to Malawi and Kenya during the first two weeks of December. For the first time ever, this team is documenting their experience on video with the purpose of creating high-quality, engaging curriculum for our kids and youth! Also for the first time, this Learning Team is vlogging their journey regularly for you to follow along! Visit The Meeting House YouTube Channel to watch the latest video updates from Africa.

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. In 2013 The Meeting House community sponsored 407 more 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.
