Giving to Missions
Giving to Global Missions
Coquitlam Alliance missionaries and mission teams(Ethos is one of these) continue to work in a global capacity in Mexico among other countries. Many of the people with whom Tarahumara Ministries work with are poor and orphaned, and in this context compassion initiatives are essential in sharing the Gospel.
Because of our relationship with Tarahumara Ministries in Mexico we have identified specific items that will tangibly help and impact needy people. We invite you to give a gift in honor of someone or to share a giving experience as a family or community group.
By giving, you will assist in showing the love of Jesus as our teams and missionaries come alongside those with incredible needs. We see this as an important part of joining God in the work He's already doing in Mexico.
The Guacayvo Boarding School/Orphanage currently houses nearly 100 Tarahumara children from the region. Of those children there are over 20 children who have yet to be sponsored. Child sponsorship is a great opportunity for you to continue to support the work going on among the Tarahumara in Mexico. As a child sponsor, you are connected to one special child who knows your name and feels your tender love and prayers.
Child Sponsorship helps provide children with:
- a bed
- clean water
- nutritious food
- medical care
- spiritual nuture
A couple of times a year you will have the opportunity to send a card and much needed items we will inform you about. This year sponsors were able to send shoes/socks one time, and jeans another.
If you would like to sponsor one or more of these children, please fill out the Sponsorship Form, print it off, and bring it in to the church. You will then be given a picture of your sponsor child. Your monthly pledge can be made by direct withdrawal each month from your chequing account, or by automatic payment monthly on your credit card. Either way, your gift is a true blessing to these children in need. You can also find the Sponsor Form at the bottom of this page.
Most sponsors give a monthly pledge of $35, however, if you are unable to give that much you can also give $20 or $25. We'd gladly accept this.
