Sponsor A Child

Uganda Child Sponsorships

My name is Pastor Tom Donovan and before I became a Pastor I went to Calvary Chapel Entebbe in Uganda with Pastor Kevin Henesey from Calvary Chapel Island of Grace in New York. On this mission trip we were strictly coming to meet the pastors and put on a refreshing retreat for them as they had just come out of Covid and somewhat of a church restructuring.

We all know how Uganda is an extremely poor country and is struggling economically, we also know that in the world there are millions of children living in poverty, with no food and nowhere to go. Our initial intent was to help these children economically, but THE LORD had a different plan.  What has happened has been from the Lord and only the Lord could have done this.

The Matthew 25:40 Ministry started with 1 school that needed funding to help the doors of the school stay open so they could continue to provide a solid biblical education to those in need. The sponsorship program was launched to strictly provide school fees, 2 meals a day, and to get an opportunity to witness to share the Gospel with the children. This was my goal when the ministry began, however since my initial trip to Uganda I have married a Ugandan, I Pastor here, teach the Bible, run evangelism outreach and do all that I can do to forward the kingdom.

The Matthew 25:40 ministry has turned into an amazing opportunity to help children, but it has become so much more than that. We are not only endlessly paying school fees and providing food daily, but we are bringing Jesus. We are teaching them the bible and sharing God’s Love with them and their families. Our entire ministry has turned into preaching, teaching the bible, baptizing the kids, and meeting weekly with them to encourage, exhort, and train them up in the way that they should go. Yes, we are providing for them financially with school fees and needed educational requirements, but that is only the opportunity for us to get into the children’s lives and feed them spiritually. The program has become a life support and system to rebuild the child and the parents lives, to give them the opportunity that so many of us have experienced growing up. We have the opportunity to help the child financially but while we are doing that we are spiritually feeding them.

We have had much success, the first school that we were helping has now been fully funded and we thank the Lord for that. Since the beginning of the program, we have watched thousands of kids come to the Lord and accept Him as Savior. We have baptized hundreds of them and we have dozens of the young adults sharing the Gospel with others and we are watching the fruit reproduce itself.

We are delighted that you are here and we thank God for you, please prayerfully ask you to consider supporting our children through prayer, a financial sponsorship, or by spreading the word about the work that we are doing here.
