Would You Sponsor Campuca, for $16 per month?

You've seen these child sponsorship pleas before. You probably think Campuca is the name of . . . 
this sweet young girl or this adorable little guy. 

But no . . . Campuca is the name of the village where they live. 

When someone sponsors "Campuca" through our feeding program, for $16 each month, they won't be sponsoring just one child. They will be sponsoring the entire feeding center in the village of Campuca - approximately 70 children!




Seems impossible, doesn't it? But through networking with other ministries and volunteers, both in the US and in Honduras, this is the amount we need to raise, each month, to continue the feeding program in this village.

The Campuca center is run by Dionisio Pineda, one of our very favorite local pastors. Pastor Dionisio grew up in Campuca and he knows and loves this village in a way no one from the outside ever really could. The feeding program is run as a ministry of his church there, and is staffed by himself and volunteers from his congregation and community - no salaries are involved. In addition to receiving nutritious meals twice each week, the children become a part of a network of caring Christians in their village. 




We're delighted to be a part of Pastor Dionisio's outreach to the village of Campuca. Perhaps YOU would like to help with this wonderful work, as well? Our ministry currently supports over 120 feeding centers, of various sizes, in Western Honduras. Individuals have been donating to the feeding program as a whole, but we have just begun to set up the sponsorship program, so very few centers have sponsors as of yet. Contact us to talk about sponsoring a village feeding center yourself - trish @ sowers4pastors.com!!!



And just for fun . . . here's a random glimpse of what it looks like, when you show up at the Campuca center with a video camera:

Trish, I wish I were able to help. My former ministry is now converting to sponsorship. My home church is very keen on Compassion, and a surprisingly large number are keeping up with their monthly support of children in Honduras. I know your work is important, and God sees your hard work.
