Claudia Gutierrez On Saturday, June 21, 2014, I was honored to be the “father of the bride.” Approximately seventeen years ago, I met a beautiful twelve-year-old girl by the name of Claudia Gutierrez. She was living at the Hogar La Granja in La Pintana, Santiago, Chile. She lived there for fifteen years. Claudia was very special to me, and became my Chilean daughter. At age eighteen, she left the Hogar and for six years, we lost track of each other. At age twenty-five, we reconnected. She came to live at the House of Hope (HOH).
The HOH is a home for young women coming out of hogares and other undesirable situations. These young women are offered a home, education, a hope for the future, and an independent life. While living at the HOH, Claudia completed high school and began a technical nursing career. She met a North-American by the name of Dave, who was a volunteer worker at the HOH. She fell in love and recently married. We pray for Dave and Claudia. We pray that, together, they will serve the Lord. This is our hope and our prayer for each of the young women and children that we serve. Tom Orme, Founder and Executive Director of Vision for Children Claudia Video
