Judy Myers (sponsoring since the beginning in 2015, currently sponsoring 10 children, 8 in Mercedes, 2 in El Tablon): Manna 4 Lempira is a wonderful, hands-on ministry, so involved in the children's lives and bringing a very personal touch to the sponsor-child relationship through numerous photos throughout the year and enabling children to continue in school through their backpack program. The most important aspect of the ministry is the emphasis on the spiritual development of the children through their involvement with the local church and instilling hope in the lives of the children, their families, and their community.
Alisa Webb: What I am the most amazed about is how far $15 a month can go! It provides so much, and that's because the money really is going to the children, families, and churches. I love how it's a small sponsorship organization, which makes it so much more personalized. I was blessed to be able to travel to Honduras with Manna 4 Lempira last summer and see firsthand the ministries of Manna and Sowers4Pastors in action. It was such a wonderful experience getting to spend time with and visit the home of each child that I sponsor. Several families told me that their child would not be able to be in school if it wasn't for the sponsorship program and the backpacks and school supplies provided. (I've been with Manna since March 2016 and sponsor 14 children.)
Megan Prence (I have been a sponsor for 3 years and I sponsor 9 children): What I love about Manna 4 Lempira is the opportunity to encourage a child’s God-given potential through feeding programs, school supply distributions, and bible classes. I love watching my sponsored children recognize the opportunities they have as children of the King. Through letters of love and encouragement, and optional visits, sponsors get to be part of raising up a generation of children who know they are loved.
Elisha Ozment (Sponsoring for three years. Now sponsoring 12 boys and 4 girls): With Manna, I love that I can KNOW where the money goes. We aren’t lining pockets. We are feeding the hungry, feeding souls, warming hearts, breaking chains. I made the commitment. God makes the payments. Manna 4 Lempira. Bread of Life.
Sarah Schreffler: I recommend Manna to all my friends with young children not just because of the affordable price (They multiply the sponsorship money like the loaves and fishes) but because the frequent pictures and opportunity to send tangible gifts helps our children be involved in the process.
Dana Williams: I love Manna 4 Lempira because they are sharing the love of Christ with so many children and their families in such meaningful ways. I also love that Manna provides the opportunity to share God’s love and hope with the precious children we sponsor and to build relationships with them and their families through letters and backpacks. We love our Manna children dearly and are so grateful to be a part of this special ministry.
Jessica Taylor: Manna 4 Lempira is an amazing ministry, partnering with them has been such a blessing! We have been able to build such great relationships with our sponsored children because Manna provides numerous opportunities to be involved. From backpacks to letters to photos-it's not just a payment, it's personal.
Hannah Hinojosa: As a mom of four young kids, I love the personal connection we can make with our sponsored children via Manna! It’s helped expand our kids’ world and their passion to pray. And the friendships that are being built are a gift.
Elle Rausch: Sponsoring Manna children is JOY multiplied. The children are joyful because of the relationship with their sponsors and letters, the school supplies and ability to receive extra gifts, their nutritional support filling their bellies with life giving food, and their exposure to fun Christian education as well as heath checks and care. Families benefit and experience joy because of the financial help, but also through the letters and relationships with sponsors. And sponsors? We feel incredible joy with each letter, each video or photo, and the giving of love via backpacks!!! $15 a month = JOY multiplied!!!!
