I learned about CFCA from my father who has several sponsored children in Guatemala and Bolivia. I also had the pleasure of going on two Mission Awareness trips to Bolivia, once to meet my fathers sponsored children and then the second time to meet mine. My first MAT was the most incredible experience I have ever had, I not only got to meet the two children my father sponsors but also their families.
I got to see first hand how CFCA works and what they do for these children, young adults and aging.
My husband and I now sponsor two children, one in Bolivia and one in Mexico.
This organization not only ensures that our sponsored friends get the tools they need to attend school, they also get some food to help the family, medical supplies and many other necessities. One of the many things I found very wonderful and inspiring is how the children are held accountable to stay in school and not only that but the parents are also involved in a group where they meet with other parents and help each other to become self sufficient.
I was awestruck at the overwhelming gratefulness of all of these people, sponsored and not sponsored. It was actually depressing leaving this country and going back to our way of life.
CFCA does amazing, wonderful work in these countries and they give hope to people that have no other resources. It is amazing and wonderful what such a small contribution does for all of these people.
I also had the pleasure of meeting the late Bob Hentzen who was the President and Co-founder of CFCA and I can't describe what a pleasure he was to be around, he and his wife Christina are so loved by all of these people and with very good reason.
I wish I could express to everyone how being a sponsor makes me feel, it is one of the best things I have ever done!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would change nothing. They do a wonderful job and I commend all of the staff for all of their hard work!
