My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for World Vision International, Federal Way, WA, USA
I just returned from Guatemala and saw first hand the work WV is doing-simply amazing! What an honor to be part of the reason they are doing such a remarkable difference.
I met my sponsor and her family...beyond a blessing! We visited various projects WV started in several communities where they teach a trade, provide the funds then once the community ise making a good profit, they leave them to run the "business" and start up a new one. The gratefulness of the communities for the difference WV is doing was wonderful. I highly recommend WV.
As for Mr. Stearns salary....he took a huge pay cut to work for WV. It would be like someone asking you to do a work for God but they can only pay you 10% of what you're making...Would you do it? He's done a great work with WV and will continue. If you read his book The Hole In Our Gospel (www.theholeinourgospel.com) you'll learn A LOT on what is our part in beating poverty and the death of millions. It's not a WV commercial, it's just pulling the blanket off "Are we doing what God has asked us to"? BTW, the book won best Christian book of the year...a MUST read!
