In our last post, I hope you caught the joy and excitement experienced by Clint and Michelle Lundeen when they met their sponsored children, Syldio and Patience.

Back in June, those of you who happen to subscribe to Christianity Today were presented with an intriguing cover. The feature article poses an all-important question for those of us who want to make a difference in the life of an impoverished child: “Does Child Sponsorship Work?”

I must admit that I turned to the article with a bit of apprehension. After all, if the results were negative, or even inconclusive, those of us involved with Our Response (to say nothing of World Vision, Compassion, and other organizations) could be barking up the wrong tree. If you haven’t seen the article, read it for yourself here. You’ll be glad you did.
