Should I Visit My Sponsored Child?
Posted By Web Team On August 4, 2008 @ 1:01 am In For New Sponsors,Sponsors and Donors | 390 Comments
Sponsor tours usually cost from $2,000 to $4,000, plus airfare to the departure city.
When we published our firstpost, one of the questions we received was:
Is the benefit to the child and sponsor worth the cost of a visit to Uganda? I would love to visit my three sponsored girls, but I hesitate to spend a considerable amount of money for “my dream” when the money could be used to sponsor additional children or ministries. I think I would feel guilty. What are your thoughts? –Shelly Quigg
We thought it would be better to have a discussion on this, to hear more than one person’s opinion, rather than just include it as one question in an entirepost.
What’s your answer? How should Shelly spend her money?
