The Lord provided a building miraculously last Spring for us to continue in ministry to the families from La Chureca (watch video). We began raising the $75,000 to buy the new facility last year. The fact that the owner cut the original price in half and was allowing us to “rent to own” was another miraculous moment. The families lining up at the gate to sign up, before we even opened, was also great encouragement from God that we are moving in the direction he wants Club Esperanza to go.
Club Esperanza is a beacon of Light in a dark place where poverty and the sinful behaviors of man have taken its toll on everyone. Over 300 children and teenagers are ministered to on a daily basis with education, discipleship, sports, feeding program, safety inside the walls, fun with all their friends, love from all of us. We know the Lord wants to keep pouring out his love and his presence into these children.
Just this morning standing in front of the Rancho I had a brother pray for us for Club Esperanza…we then talked about other exciting ministry all around the world…then unexpectedly he came back to the Club and said he wanted to get the ball rolling for this $26,000. He gave $1,000 and to quote him “it is a no brainer that God wants to do this, I am excited to see it happen, I want to plant the seed.” Amen. We are on our way!
What is the Paypal address? The link isn’t working on my phone.
My kids are sending $30 from their Give envelopes and Vance and I are sending some as well!
Hey Michelle…that is so awesome! Please give them hugs from us and tell them thank you! 🙂
We haven’t gotten paypal entirely figured out, but I will post the actual address here….if that doesn’t work it is listed under “Open Hearts”
That is so long, probably makes phones confused or something…thank you Michelle!
I did it on my laptop…so proud of y’all!
