Beloved Friends,

Most of us love giving and receiving gifts. El Rancho is filled with noisy, growing, happy boys because of the generosity of so many of you.

Financial sponsorship is a gift with permanent value and is more meaningful to Rancho boys than you can imagine – each of these boys has been asking if he has a sponsor. He asks for a name and a photo. He is longing to know that someone cares enough for him to provide dependable financial support and send an occasional letter. This is something they do not get from their Mexican parents, something precious and almost unimaginable.

You should have seen the wonder in their faces when we explained the program. Then they were all asking at once – do I have one, do I? It may seem common to you, but not to them.

Giving personal monthly support is a gift of love that you will love giving and the boys will love receiving. You will be blessed, too.

No support level is too small or too large. Read more about the program on the Sponsor page.

May you be blessed with richest blessings.

Dan

  1. Danny, this is such a wonderful photo, a revealing study of a teaching moment. This should be one of your favorites. I truly enjoyed these short bios. It gives a snapshot of the boys’ character traits and prayer needs. Bless your ongoing ministry of building His Kingdom.
