Outreach 2017

In addition to equipping others to be God’s hands and feet out in the world, 50% of the profit from Sonshine Candles online candle sales will be divided between 3 chosen organizations which will change each year.  One will be devoted to helping feed the hungry, one to helping share and spread God’s word (or the gospel) , and lastly those helping make a difference in the world by giving those in need chance for a better life. If anyone has suggestions for future year organizations to be given consideration please email us at tgabos@sonshinecandles.com.

Hunger

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) – Feed My Starving Children® is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and we ship these meals to our distribution partners. FMSC meals have reached nearly 70 countries around the world in our history. For more information please visit www.fmsc.org.

Sharing the gospel

Youth With a Mission (YWAM) – Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), we unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known. For more information please visit www.ywam.org,

Seeds of Hope

Many children served by the Lutheran Churches in El Salvador are unable to attend school because there is no money. With no money, with nothing to do, with no hope, the children are vulnerable to gangs, organized crime, drugs, and prostitution.  Unlike in the United States, school in El Salvador is neither free nor mandatory.   Entrance to school is limited to those who can afford to pay for a proper uniform, shoes, supplies, textbooks and fees, including transportation.   Sponsorship donations go directly to families to help pay for these costs, making school possible for children who grow up in extreme poverty.
