Sponsor a child this season and transform a life!

Gerardo’s Transformational Story

I´m a 12 twelve years old boy, and I live with my mom and four siblings in a small house in Nuevo Cuscatlán. I started to pray for being sponsored because we live in a hard situation, my mom had to get a loan from a “shark” to start selling some things like refreshments and snacks in a small kiosk in the church but she was asked to get out. God opened another door and now she sells in a kiosk at a high school. It has been hard for my family because my parents got separated after my father got another woman. My sisters and I are living with my mom and my father helps with not too much since he left us.

This is my testimony because the Lord listened my prayers, since I started coming to the SOI Soccer Academy in August 2016 God began changing my life, in December 2016, I received the great news that I had been chosen to be sponsored and last Christmas I received my first gift of food from my sponsors that are a couple and a Christmas gift from SOI staff. To be sponsored has been a BIG blessing for me and my family because sometimes we do not have what to eat, and the basket of groceries we receive every month have covered some of our necessities, because the resources my mom can get are not enough now without my father at home.

I´m very thankful with SOI El Salvador and my sponsors because they are helping me and my family. I am a blessed person to have them. They are in my prayers and I hope to meet my sponsors someday.

About the Program

Providing education sometimes is just not enough, the sponsorship program enables a donor to connect to a child and enhance their entire development experience. We have been called to equip the next generation of Christian leaders by creating an environment of empowerment and discipleship. We are blessed with this opportunity to invest in a child’s life; join us.

The impact of EmpowerMe Child Sponsorship is based on the relationship you are building with your child.  By praying, writing letters, receiving handwritten letters twice a year or by going on a vision trip to visit your child, we make sure that your relationship with your rising leader is always impactful.

For a monthly sponsorship of $35 your sponsored child will be equipped and discipled through:

  • Bible Training
  • Education Assistance
  • Mentoring
  • Feeding Assistance
  • Sports Ministry Activities
  • Health Care Assistance
