Child Sponsorships

While one of the goals is the financial support that it takes  to care for the children, a key point is also the building up and inner healing of each child. Most children come to Shadow of His Wings with damaged hearts from a past of people constantly treating them like they had little or no value.

The sponsorship relationship shows them that there are people out there who love them and will pray for them and may even send them a letter every now and then.

Woman Sponsorships

Through our women’s program we are helping widows, single mothers and our older children receive an education and job training so that they can reach their full potential and care for themselves and their children.

These women receive training that allows them to generate income for their families, as well as support from social workers, psychologists, and mentors. They are learning how to make positive choices and decisions in their finances, and much more.

Through this program, we aim to positively effect the lives of these women and the generations to come.

Participate in the Next Mission Trip

With the cancellation of the 2020 trip, the 2021 Mission Trip is full, however it’s never too early to put your name on the list for the 2022 trip. Send an email to Pastor Russ Peterson at russ.peterson@clcop.org, letting him know that you/your family would like to be included on the team if there is space availability (current year team members get first choice of participation). There is no upper or lower age limit for the team members, however all children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Occasionally, there are opportunities to join church teams from around the US/Canada, going to JPLA, that are not full, please email Pastor Russ at russ.peterson@clclop.org for more information on those teams. 

Team expenses vary from year to year; the cost of the 2020 trip was $1,400 per team member.
