About Us

Our Story

Sheltering Wings was started by Ruth Cox in June 1999. Our mission is based on 2 Corinthians 5:17-20, we are called to bring the reconciliation of Christ to the nations – through partnering missionaries with a heart for service with countries that have need of transformation – physically but especially spiritually.

We began with a small child sponsorship program in Burkina Faso, West Africa, which has now grown into an orphanage, a couple of elementary schools, a technical school, and a medical clinic. The child sponsorship program now supports over 400 children.

We also support work in Brazil and in other varied countries.

We have had numerous international short-term, mid-term visitors to our work(s) – exploring God’s call to the mission field in a challenging but safe Christ-based environment.

Sheltering Wings’ stateside presence is in St. Louis Missouri, USA and we are a United States registered 501c3. Our yearly financial statements and audit information is available upon request.
