What is a Bread of Life Child Sponsor?
A Bread of Life Child Sponsor is a special, caring friend to a child living in a poverty-stricken area of the world. An individual who can become uniquely involved in that child's life. Most importantly, the financial support of the sponsor gives the child an opportunity to hear about and believe in Jesus.

  • THE VISION: In January 2006, God gave Rick & Carie a vision of the Bread of Life. He revealed to them the desperate need of the children going hungry and alone in the streets.

  • THE GOAL: To give hope to Dominican children by showing the love of Jesus in practical ways. To encourage, empower and help to rebuild their broken lives and to give
  them a refuge from the streets. God has now transformed this work into an orphanage.
