Sky Cross was founded in the summer of 1995 with the objective of providing basic food (98%)and some medical supplies(2%)to very poor families and orphans through established missionaries on the Texas-Mexico border area. The missionaries then use their resources for education, especially the children. This combination has proven to be very successful in combating continual poverty. Everyone who works for or with Sky Cross does not receive a salary or monetary gift, so that 100% of all donations are spent directly for food and medical supplies, unless a donor requests otherwise. All expenses are paid by Sky Cross volunteers.

Mind is the Master-power that molds and makes, and Man is Mind, and evermore he takes the Tool of Thought, and shaping what he wills, brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills-He thinks in secret and it comes to pass; Environment is but his looking-glass. As A Man Thinketh .
