Year End Donation

Dear Family and Friends, we pray that you and your families are doing well. We also pray that at this time of the year we can all be in great spirits as we celebrate the reason for the season, the birth of Jesus Christ. Our ministry in La Pintana Chile is growing and prospering beyond any of our expectations. We are now working with three schools and two children’s homes. We are in the process of building a soccer field to bring more young people to the House of Hope so that we can share the love of Jesus Christ. We have the opportunity to minister to over 900 children on a weekly basis. We praise God for all that He is doing through the ministry of Vision for Children / House of Hope.

Matching Gift

Dear VFC Family, it has been a while since you and I last communicated, probably way too long. I want to bring you up to date on the exciting things that are going on at the House of Hope in Chile. In the past 12 months we have had three of our girls graduate from either a vocational school or university and they are all now working full time in their chosen professions. They are Cynthia, Damy and Eben. In June Claudia was married, yes I said married. I had the honor of being the father of the bride. And what a great honor it was. Our girls are doing wonderful. It is such a blessing to watch them mature and prepare for an independent life.

This past year we have started multiple ministries to meet the needs of the street kids that live in La Pintana. You should be at the House of Hope on a Saturday. It is nothing but awesome ! Continue reading Matching Gift House of Hope

Team Two / First Update


Hello Family and Friends, Team One has left the house and it is now up to Team Two to complete the work. Pray for us as we are a Team of 3.5 people. However God knows what we need to get the work done and has sent us 29 students plus two great teachers from Nido, a private school way on the other side of Santiago. This is their week without walls. We have them for 5 days and we plan to get as much work out of them as possible They are volunteers and we have already had them for three days. They are a great bunch of kids from freshman to seniors and from all over the world. They are helping us to install insulation and dig a trench for our water line. It is amazing to watch them work and eat. Thank you Nido !

On Sunday [ the day before our week without walls kids showed up ] we had the opportunity to visit one of our Spanish speaking churches, the Penalolen Church. It was a great service. The church allowed us time for Daniel and I to update them on our ministries and sell some of our micro business items. We felt so welcomed and appreciated. Thank you Pastor Elias for allowing us to come.

After the church service we headed to one of our favorite shopping places, Los Dominico’s for some shopping and good eating. After a brief unexpected rain fall and it getting colder we headed home for a time of relaxation and fellowship.

Please continue to pray for the Team and the girls as they continue with their studies. God bless !MK429641

Join us in building Hope

VFC Family,

As our two October teams are getting ready to leave for Santiago in just a little over a week, we are making all our final preparations to prepare for the big month of construction we have ahead at The House of Hope.  We’re looking forward to adding new rooms so that more girls can be nurtured as they grow into amazing women that fulfill God’s purpose for their lives. We’ll also be adding a space for their micro business Accesorios Esperanza where they are getting hands-on experience in the intricacies of running an organization; lessons they will be able to use for many years to come.  It’s an exciting time of growth and rejoicing in what the Lord is doing! 

As we draw close to our departure, we’ve encountered a hurdle.  We know these additions will be beautiful and well utilized – but as things currently stand the vision is missing something that we need your help with – windows, doors, flooring and walls!  Can you imagine?

Casa esperanza 2009

God has graciously provided a way – as He always does! An anonymous VFC friend has offered a $10,000 gift with the condition that we obtain a matching amount before we leave for Chile (October 4th)! With your gift, the gift of other VFC friends and family, and this matching $10,000 we will have the funds for our construction work teams to build. So will you help us reach this goal?  Can you help us buy a door for $250? A piece of sheet rock for the walls for $10? A window for $300?  A square foot piece of floor tile for $2?  Every gift helps. Together, we can see this beautiful vision come to fruition!! 

You can give here or here by notating “$10K Matching Gift” in the comment section, or you can send us a check written to Vision for Chile at  1176 Olde Cameron Lane, Franklin, TN 37067.  If you send a check, will you also send us an email so we can be sure it counts towards our $10,000 goal? 

Thank you for your continued support and your prayers as we work to build Hope in Santiago in Christ’s name.

-Tom Orme

Why do you go to Chile every year?

Question from Casa esperanza to Kerry Miltras: why you coming to Chile and the House of Hope this October?
Hola Daniel, You ask why I am coming to Chile and the House of Hope this October. The answer is because God has asked me to. Through my prayers he has revealed to me his purpose for my life. To serve. Sounds simple, but I can tell you that it is very difficult.
It’s hard to leave my family for three weeks. It’s hard to raise the money to come. It’s hard to miss three weeks of work. It’s hard to be away from my home church for three weeks. But it’s not all hard. Its easy to see the joy and love in the kids we serve. It’s easy to meet up with good friends like you and Tom Orme and Lee and Lee, just to name a few. Serving at the orphanage and the HOH has changed my life. I am truly blessed to be involved. God is good!
I encourage your readers to join us this October. God blesses our efforts and you can see the results in the lives that are changed forever. It’s not easy, but Jesus told us it would be hard but that he would be with us even in the most difficult times. We work hard and have lots of fun and get out of our box. Awesome!!
