We went to a wonderful place the other day called Hope Children’s Home. It is a Christ centered home for children whose parents simply can’t take care of them any more. Parents voluntarily (not through the courts) decide they don’t have the means to take care of their children and they give them to the Hope Children’s Home for care. Currently they have 63 children in residence. The children range in ages from birth through early college age.
Hope Children’s Home doesn’t receive any funding from government agencies, so they share the love and teachings of Christ freely with the children and families. They do not require the parents to contribute funds towards their child‘s stay. All funding comes from donations received by businesses or individuals who believe in the vision.
It was amazing to see the “Prayer Boards” throughout the campus with prayer needs written by the children. Such things listed were batteries, sugar, cleaners, paper plates, laundry detergent, etc. Not the typical “wish list” from a child. These children know the power of a prayer. They are being taught to depend on God for each and every need in their lives (no matter how small). Each donation of resources and money is stretched to its fullest to provide quality care, education, and a loving home for these children.
Thank you to the staff, house parents, teachers, volunteers, and contributors of Hope Children’s Home for investing in children who have no father on this earth. Because of you they will know the love of our heavenly Father and Savior, Jesus Christ.
