Club Esperanza is our ministry center down in the La Chureca neighborhood that is now called Villa de Guadalupe. We are able to reach over 300 children every day at the Club.
One of the ministries is the High School Scholarship program. We have a select group of High School students that are doing well in school but need the extra financial help to be able to cover the costs of attending school which includes mainly their uniforms, school supplies, and various expenses throughout the year.
What is great about this group is we have a real opportunity to reach each of these students personally. It is almost like a small youth group, and we enjoy being able to spend time with them. We plan to have weekly meetings and monthly outings. We look forward to this year and seeing what God will do in each of their lives.
Yesterday we took all of the students out to do some beginning of the year shopping. It was lots of fun for all of them to pick out a new pair of shoes, to buy uniforms, to receive school supplies….but really it was fun to hang out together! We stopped at the Eskimo ice cream shop for ice cream cones after we finished!
We want to send a special thank you to our friends at Love Light & Melody who made it possible for us to have this fun day and buy all the uniforms, shoes and supplies!
