They are an amazing example and testimony of the faithfulness of the Lord in their life allowing their family to make a footprint on the world for good. David and Monique are former youth pastors and have a calling to pour into the lives of young people. When David approached us with his desire of starting a mentoring program for boys, we knew that the De La Cruz family is whom we had been praying for over the past few years. They have stepped up and are on fire for building strong boys of virtue. They not only teach with their words but also model a life of honor and respect. We couldn’t be more pleased to have them on our team, changing the world!
