hopehouse.jpgFor the past several months we have been working and preparing for this day, August 18th! Why is this day so important? Because today we opened our doors at Ecuador Hope House to 29 returning girls (picture above) and 14 new girls, for a total of 43 young ladies in the Hope House.

There are endless things to do when preparing for 30 teenage girls who come from all throughout the jungle to live under one roof, I don't even want to bore you with the list, but let me just say that at the end of the day, when all the girls are sitting around the room, laughing, playing, coloring, talking and getting to know each other, I can't help but think Jesus is happy!

We also want to recognize that this would absolutely not be possible without all those that support the Hope House, it is because of your financial support and your daily prayers that we are able to bring in 30 girls. Thank you!
