Founding Directors,
Sparrows Gate Mission

Our goal in 1986, is the same today. We want to rescue more poor children in Latin America and the Philippines from A WASTED MIND AND EMPTY Jesus name.

We pray often that God will influence many loving, servants with a tough hide and tender heart, to come and help with His over ripe harvest in Mexico, Belize, Amazon and the Philippines.

Charles Dickens said, "I love these little people, and it is not a slight thing when they who are so fresh from God love us."


“For many years now my wife Sally and I have been bringing youth groups from Salem, Oregon to serve the poor children of Baja at Sparrows Gate Mission’s children’s home and schools. We go to give but always come back with more than we gave. The verse, ‘Give and it shall be given unto you,’ comes to mind. Our young people agree. Giving our time and talent and even a cup of cold water to the poor children is rewarding beyond belief.”

Before meeting Jesus, I was into promoting rock concerts and driving fast cars. But God saved me and introduced me to happy, loving, orphans at Sparrows Gate Mission, in rural Tijuana, many years ago.

My wife Mary and I have been eager and blessed through the years to help make a difference for some of the poorest children in Mexico, Belize, Amazon and the Philippines, who have come to know, love and serve Jesus because of Sparrows Gate Mission.

Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight!

Al Poma2

I am honored to be a Sparrows Gate Mission Board member and be involved in decisions and ministry relating to Christian Schools that were birthed to allow children to attend, that would never be able to be educated elsewhere.

We thank God for raising up Sparrows Gate Missions to reach adults and precious children in the Amazon, Belize, Mexico and the Philippines with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Hearts and lives are changed forever!

I tell all of you with certainty, whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is a disciple will never lose his reward."
