A HISTORY OF WORLD VISION’S WORLD MISSION
In 2000, New York-based pastor and teacher Sheila R. Vitale established Christ-Centered Kabbalah (CCK), through which she has released over 100 audio lectures, DVDs, and illustrations of spiritual principles, as well as her most recent book: The Prophecies of Daniel, Chapter 11, Alternate Translation. During her free time, Sheila R. Vitale supports World Vision.
A Christian humanitarian organization, World Vision partners with children, families, and communities throughout the world to help them achieve their potential by addressing the causes of poverty and injustice. It started over 65 years ago when founder Bob Pierce, in a simple act of kindness, used the $5 in his pocket to help a little girl.
Through the decades, World Vision has shifted its focus, depending on the call of the times. For example, in the 1970s, it came to the aid of Vietnamese refugees, and in the 1980s, it played a significant role in countering the Ethiopian famine. A decade later, World Vision advocated for involvement of the Church in the AIDS epidemic. More recently, the 2000s saw it helping to provide short-term relief and promote long-term recovery among those affected by the Asian tsunami. Today, World Vision affects the lives of 4 million children in over 100 countries. To learn more, visit WorldVision.org.
