These 5 kids grew up to be global citizens

Vinh Chung grew up to be a global citizen.

As technology connects the world, becoming a global citizen rooted in God’s love is now more important than ever.

That means thinking beyond our own needs and experiences to understand how interdependent the world is. It’s also about becoming a multiplier — using what God has blessed you with to pay it forward.

Dr. Jackson Ole Sapit went from growing up as the son of a wealthy Maasai warrior to a life of poverty at age 4 when his father died. World Vision sponsored him through his education, and now he’s using that knowledge to spiritually counsel the Anglican Church of Kenya as the new archbishop.

Jimmy Morales‘ father died when he was 3, leaving his mother with three children to take care of on her own. With World Vision’s help, Jimmy and his siblings attended school. Now he’s the president of Guatemala and working to turn around the country after an era of government corruption.
