Global Scale & Our Ultimate Purpose

The Global Slavery Index is full of startling information breaking down the amount of slavery per country worldwide. If you’re looking for some perspective in life, this is something to check out.

But what if we do a bit of a purpose check on our hearts when we looked at startling stats like this?

God has certainly blessed us with passionate, Godly people whose hearts are tuned to the work at hand.

Getting Ready for a Big Week in Haiti

Published August 5, 2014 – Categories: Caring for Orphans, Family, Haiti, LSM, News, Uncategorized

Next week is our 6th annual VBS in Haiti running from August 13-18!  

Our annual week of VBS is full of laughter, love and poignant moments of growth. It’s a chance for all 16 Home of Hope families to come together with our Haitian staff – much like a big family reunion – and talk about the incredible things God’s doing in our lives. We cry, laugh and remember that we’re not alone in this journey… this specific journey of caring for formerly extremely vulnerable children. And as we look forward with great anticipation to this week, we want invite you to walk it with us!

We’ll be updating the blog and facebook throughout VBS and we’d love to have you follow what we’re up to. We’ll share some stories of the kids, some fun VBS moments and talk about what’s going on under the surface. It’s our prayer that this week will not only be an incredible blessing for our Home of Hope families, but for you as well!
