Today we say Happy Birthday to CasaEsperanza / House of Hope. It is hard to believe that you are 7 years old. I remember when you were just a dream, a prayer request. And now here you are making a great impact on the community of La Pintana Chile. We thank Jesus for what you have become to so many children and young adults. You are changing lives and meeting the needs of so many street kids and orphans. We thank God for the many volunteers that have given so much to help serve. Thank you churches, thank you businesses, thank you individuals for your prayers, your love and sacrifice, you are making a difference. I feel so privileged to be a small part of all of this. We look forward to many more years of loving people and sharing the love of Jesus.

Dear VFC Family, I pray that this communication finds you and your family doing well. Believe it or not, October is just around the corner and it is time to begin thinking and praying about “ you “ coming to Chile. We would love to have you as a part of our Team working at the House of Hope and helping to change lives. You can make a difference! It doesn’t matter what level of skills you have, what matters is do you have a heart for Jesus and do you want to make a difference in the lives of street and orphaned children. If you do, please come or send someone and become that “ light “ that is so desperately needed in the community of La Pintana Chile. Attached is our promotional flyer along with our application and release forms. If you have any questions please give me a call @ 615 973 9837. Continue reading Next Trip
In our country, the policy for children in residence is that the child not reside more than one calendar year in an “orphanage” home, which in many cases does not happen. This social problem affects thousands of young people who are treated as adults, which on the one hand they are by chronological age, but are not prepared for independent living. Our Foundation acts to fill the gaps that are generated due to this failure in the law. We cannot remain oblivious to system failures that affect lives and dignity. For the girls in homes the question “what do you want to be when you are an adult?” the answer is simply to survive.
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
