- Howard Thurman, "Disciplines of the Spirit"

|On the eve of a new millennium, our thoughts turn toward the future and to the hopes we harbor for our children. But what of the dreams of children - particularly those who live confined by limited means and opportunities? For this special photo issue, we visited children in World Vision projects in five countries to photograph them and ask them about their prayers and dreams. |
Many of their whimsical wishes and aspirations are not so different from those of children in our own homes, schools, and churches. Even so, the children's joy and their simple desires are poignant in the face of the challenges and material poverty to which they were born.
It is our wish that as you "meet" these children, you will see in them the image of the One who is our Creator, who gives us all a hope and a future.
