Building a better world for children today and tomorrow....

All of us have a story to tell and a legacy to leave. Below are inspiring stories of faithful supporters like you. Each has included World Vision in their estate plan so they can continue to support World Vision after their lifetime - it's their legacy of love to the world's children.

Everything we have comes from God... this is just returning it to Him
"Everything we have comes from God... this is just returning it to Him"

Richard & Margaret Grable, Hawaii
World Vision partner since 1991

"We've been married for 60 years and have four children who are all believers. Originally we were going to leave everything we had to them," Richard explains. "then I started thinking: World Vision does so much in so many areas . . the more they can do for these kids, the better."

That's why he and Margaret also chose to leave a portion of their estate to World Vision. "we sponsor three children with World Vision," says Margaret. "Sponsorship has made me much more aware of the hardships children around the world face every day. I think that World Vision is working in God's will ... I want to be sure that I am doing what He wants. World Visio is really God-centered, and that is what I look for."

For Richard and Margaret, honoring God comes first, even after their lifetime: "Everything we have comes from God... this is just returning it to Him."
