Progress Update

If you’re wondering where we’ve been, our hands have been busy working on our new children’s home! We are super excited about this project but we need your help! We are remodeling a historic home in Cuenca, Ecuador for our newest children’s home. The home is over 200 years old, but has a great deal of room to house and care for children with ample room for the children to play and even tend to a garden. There’s a tremendous need for this home and we are working day and night to get it ready so we can start receiving children.

What an awesome team we have. They are really putting a lot of hard work in to making this happen. If you would like to give us a hand, we sure could use it! More kids means we need more beds, paint, a few bathrooms need plumbing repairs, glass repaired in windows….just an overhaul to make it a safe and warm home for the children.

Soon I’ll be heading to Peru as we work on opening a children’s home in one of the poorest areas in South America. Children are living in the trash dumps, we’ve heard stories of parents selling their children for $20, and so many homeless street children are in dire need of a safe home. God is opening doors for this ministry to make a global impact! YOU are making it happen! More on Peru soon ….
