Our deep desire is that the babies who will come to call this their home will discover the love of Jesus as they are cared for here.
Those of us on the planning committee of the Children’s Home have dreamed for years of reaching out to abandoned and orphaned children of Guatemala.
We believe that the abandoned children in Guatemala are God’s children, and part of the next generation of godly leaders who will rise up to impact spiritual change in their society. Currently, the need is great in Guatemala for a Christian home such as this. The situation is complicated, as the doors for adoption from Guatemala are not open as they used to be. These babies don’t have many opportunities available to them, and we believe that our Children’s Home will be a place of refuge, where love and hope will be offered and where lives will be transformed by the power of Jesus.
We are well on our way to completing the first phase of the Children’s Home. The infant house is constructed, the roof and floors are in, and the furnishings are being made. Construction of the staff and volunteer housing is progressing well, and some of the staff housing is complete. We’re now working on furnishing the baby home – including with cribs handmade by Guatemalans in our woodworking shop! The paperwork has been carefully prepared, and once the baby home is fully furnished, we will be able to submit the paperwork to the local governing authority for official approval.
We invite you to consider donating towards this project to help us finish phase one of the children’s home.
