Even though Casa de Amor has cared for children for 4 ½ years with over 80 passing through our doors, we've never had a vehicle for supporting a specific child...until now!
Thanks to the encouragement and support of First Baptist Church McKinney in December 2008, our first child sponsorship program is officially launched!
I am grateful for the hard work of my family, volunteer Denise Knee (pictured here with “her” baby), staff of First Baptist Church McKinney, and the resources I found online to draft the details of our sponsorship program. And the quiet hours I found here and there to sit and write out all the bios for the packets...
It’s been fun as we begin, to help people decide on a baby or child to sponsor—many of them former CDA volunteers who know the kids.
Doesn’t the impact just feel greater when we have a name and a face to go along with our donation? Knowing that you are helping "Sara" or “Juan” and getting pictures and updates on their progress seems so much more personal. That’s why we’re excited about the potential of this program!
And imagine the prayer covering......sponsors committed to praying for their child every time God brings him/her to mind.
I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. I Samuel 1:27
It’s just $25 a month, 82 cents a day.
