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.
With the introduction of our new mission Transform, we are more excited than ever about our commitment to our brothers and sisters in Mposa, Malawi. We will continue to support individual children through sponsorship dollars and will also support community-based projects that are already making a huge impact .
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 community. Pray for the physical and spiritual needs of your sponsor child, their family, the community leaders, and World Vision workers
