Looking back...

2014 has been a year of growth.
The spiritual warfare has been intense, but we keep fighting the good fight.
Its been trying, and God had taught me so much.
Looking back and counting my blessings I see all the ways God has manifested in my life and in Village of Hope.
Village of Hope has grown so much and now has 4 homes and 36 children. 
Our kids blow me away with how much they have grown and learned, and I am so blessed to be a part of that.
Our Pure Hope program is developing and we are seeing success as the mothers learn to care for their children. 
I have started raising funds through Commission to every nation and will soon be moving into an apartment.
32 Guatemalans have been trained on how to protect our kids and prevent sexual abuse.
12 kids at Village of Hope accepted Jesus as their personal savior, as well as many in our outreach program.
Guatemalans are learning about adoption and that family is what is best for every child. 
We now have 10 families that we deliver food to and minister to each week. 
Shoes, bunk beds, water filters, food and homes have been given in the surrounding villages.
Every single one of the kids at Village of Hope is now undetectable for HIV.

Its not too late to partner with us!
