Don Ross (top left) and Rita Pedersen (top right) of Hammond recently returned from a trip to Ecuador, where they met a child named Darwin Perugachi Torres (inset), who they’ve been sponsoring through World Vision. The 15-year-old boy lives with his parents in Maquipurashum, about 100 kilometres from the World Vision national office in Quito. They met Darwin, as well as his mother and father, self-employed farmers who in good years can raise barely enough food for their own family. The local Maple Ridge couple had their picture taken with Darwin, his mother, and a copy of their hometown newspaper, The TIMES, during their South American excursion.
