What do Veggie Tales and World Vision Have In Common?


Sharing is caring!

 I am busily preparing for our trip to Bolivia.
  • Planning what I am going to pack. Still shopping for shoes and a suitcase.
  • Imagining what I will experience, and hoping our group leader was kidding when he talked about some of the foods we will be eating. Ha.
  • Trying to learn more about the country of Bolivia and World Vision.

As often happens when I am wandering the web, my search led me to YouTube where I found myself watching this great video.

What do Veggie Tales and World Vision have in common?

They care about children. All children. Everywhere.

I was blessed to see a bit of footage from a previous blogger trip on this video. I am getting so excited! Hearing stories from people who have gone on mission trips heightens my anticipation.

Like the conversation Rev and I had this past Sunday morning with a family who had recently returned from a mission trip to Haiti. We were touched by the young adult daughter’s comment when she said, “It was hard, but I liked it. It was harder coming back home.”

We asked her “why” and she replied, “Because we have so much that we don’t need.”

They also shared with us a Haitian proverb that says, “God gives, but He doesn’t share.” The point of this proverb is not that God is stingy. He provides enough resources for everyone to have the provision they need, but He leaves the responsibility of sharing to us.

I am thankful that World Vision has provided a way for us to share. Would like to know more about how you can share with a child in Bolivia? Click on the sponsor a child button in the column to the right.

Would you please pray?

Please keep the entire team traveling to Bolivia in your prayers? We are each working on long to do lists as we count down the days until we leave. And would you also pray for the children of Bolivia? Our greatest hope is that through sponsors like you and me, they will be blessed with the gift of lasting change and bright futures.

  1. Hi Deb – I love the veggie tales – they have got it together! I will pray for you and your team.

  2. My kids loved this video and I think it helped them understand a little bit about what I’m about to do. Thanks for sharing it! I’m looking forward to meeting you!

  3. Thanks Tracy, We are so thankful for your prayers. God bless you! Deb

  4. Joy, I love Veggie Tales too. They make me laugh! What a great way to introduce World Vision to your children! I can’t wait to meet you also. Thanks!!

  5. I am praying for the entire Bolivia team and your trip there and back!! Can’t wait to read all about the trip and your time there. I know you will have many blessings to share. Over the years, as a missionary, I found that when I thought I was going to ‘give out’ with others- I ended up being the one the most ‘given to’- God taught me so much and gave me so many things….and that is how God works, isn’t it? The more we share- the more He cares and so both sides are filled with blessings!!!!

  6. Thank you so much Anjuli! We are so appreciative of your prayers! I love reading your mission stories. Never dreamed I would be sharing some of my own. God is sooooo good! Thanks for your constant encouragement! You are a blessing!

  7. Just discovered you and your team through Internet Cafe Devotions and will be following along with your adventures now! Love Veggie Tales – they are the best.

  8. Yay Courtney, Thanks for letting me know. I’m so glad you’ll be following. Just got off the phone with the rest of the team, and we are all getting very excited.
