One of the devastating results of life as an orphan or underprivileged child is the lack of ability to dream of a future they can believe in. And while they may have God given potential, without significant help they are stuck in a cycle of poverty. While there are exceptions to the rule, we have seen many children fall into sexual promiscuity and pregnancy, illegal activity with the drug cartel or simply slipped away never to be heard from again.
After watching this cycle over eight years at Casa Hogar Elim Orphanage, home to 80 beautiful children, we felt pressed to take action. After prayer and consultation with friends and family and an invitation from the orphanage, my husband and I made the decision to go all in! Our home is now Nuevo Laredo and we are beginning to build a learning center at the orphanage, as well as, expanding and automating the existing chicken, vegetable and tilapia farm.
While our goal is to improve access to education and vocational skills, and nutrition through the farm, there is, of course, more. Through it all, we will point each child to Jesus Christ as their Savior so that they can experience restoration to a life of purpose and fulfill their God-given
potential. These children have experienced more loss and devastation in their short years than seems bearable but our God has a plan for each and every one of them and it is good!
And while we are willing to be the hands and feet, we cannot do this alone. We need your
help. We humbly ask for your financial support and for your prayers. Alone we may go fast but together we will go far. Please join us as we change the world, one child at a time.
