Child Sponsorship

When I first started out sponsoring children, it was through World Vision.  According to their records, here’s the timeline of who we sponsored where and when:

  1. April 8, 1981: Fabian Yamberla from Ecuador.
  2. October 6, 1983: Sponsorship was transferred to David Beltran from Colombia.
  3. October 21, 1991: Once David’s community became self-sufficient our sponsorship started with Cristian Fabian Hurtado from Colombia and continued until October 2007.

In 1992 we started our involvement with Compassion Canada (Nancy’s brother Steve started to work for Compassion in 1991) and over the years we’ve sponsored 14 different kids.  (You can kind of tell by the “August” start dates that other than “replacements” for kids that have left the projects, we have sponsored all of our kids through Kingdom Bound events.
