Our Sponsor a Child ministry ensures that every child has access to the education needed to become a self sustaining individual and contributing member of their community.

El Ministerio de San Pablo (St. Paul’s Ministry) will facilitate the sponsorship of teenage youth by church groups, individuals, or families who want to make a positive difference in the lives of the children of La Gran Familia.

An anonymous donor will match your funds for the upcoming school year; therefore your donation of $750 will result in a yearly donation of $1500 to:

  • Provide education for one teen including: tuition, books, supplies, uniforms, transportation, and tutoring.
  • Help foster communication between the teen and their sponsor
  • Empower the teen to reach his or her potential and to become a positive influence in their community.

Between 1998 and 2001, Diego was the youngest of nine abandoned boys being cared for by Fr. Gregory Spinks, when he died of a heart attack in 2001. (Diego is shown in the picture below in front of Fr. Greg wearing an orange shirt.) He has warm memories of Fr. Greg, mentioning how he “helped with homework, encouraged sports, taught us to pray, always had a smile and advised us to do good.”
