It’s been an exciting few weeks in Guatemala. As you know, the Vida Children’s Home received its official approval on July 9th, 2019. Right around that time, a tiny boy was abandoned and brought to a hospital – the same hospital that we visit with our teams, the same hospital where we’ve cried tears over the abandoned babies who need love and a family.
About a week later, this little guy was placed in our care. Baby Joseph arrived at the Vida Children’s Home in time to join in our grand opening celebrations.
We are praying that Baby Joseph will discover that he is abundantly loved as he is cared for as part of the Vida Children’s Home family.
Will you champion the cause of the orphan and the fatherless? Will you champion abandoned children such as Baby Joseph? We’re looking for at least 50 orphan care champions to partner with us in the care of little Joseph and other children who will come to call the Vida Children’s Home their home:
5 champions @ $10/month
20 champions @ $25/month
10 champions @ $50/month
10 champions @ $100/month
4 champions @ $500/month
1 champion @ $1000/month
Regardless of how many babies we’re caring for at the Vida Children’s Home, many of our expenses remain the same. Thank you for helping us to build a solid foundation with which to care for Baby Joseph and the children who will join him at the Vida Children’s Home.
Thanks to those of you who have already become Orphan Care Champions! Whatever amount you are able to commit, you’ll be showing God’s love to the fatherless and changing the future for abandoned children like Baby Joseph.
Yesterday, we received the word that we have all been waiting and praying for – the Vida Children’s Home has official government approval!
After many years of planning, preparing, and praying, we can now accept children ages two and under into the Vida Children’s Home!
Please pray with us that these cribs will be filled with the babies God has prepared for us – and pray that we will be able to provide them with lots of love, a home and a family.
