Stories of Hope | Food, faith, and a new home

Hi Friend,

God is faithful, and He is working in the hearts and lives of people around the world. We’re so glad we can share the following stories of His goodness with you this month.

During the most recent community food distribution, Pastor Robinson visited the community of Ensueño and delivered 55 meals to 55 families — over 1,000 delivered in Santiago total. If you visited Santiago on a mission trip last fall, you might have recognized the location. It was in Ruth’s home, one of the homes built and repaired by several Mission of Hope teams. While distributing food, Pastor Robinson and his team were also sharing the gospel, and a young couple, Florestal and Manouchka, told him they wanted to accept Jesus as their Savior. “They invited us into their home to pray for them,” explains Pastor Robinson. We took their information to stay connected with them and always go and visit them, and they always follow the Bible study I do on Facebook.” They have also begun attending his church and are talking with him now about getting married.


Maria has been a neighbor and friend in Guatemala for a long time. She is a widow caring for her five children and her elderly mother. In preparation for the Hope for Her team that was to visit Guatemala in mid-June, our team was previewing needed repairs to her home. Upon further inspection, however, the team realized that with the holes in the walls and termite damage, the home could literally be pushed over by a handful of men. Instead of repairs, we decided to build Maria a completely new home.

The local team went to work rebuilding the four walls, but they did not stop there. They also built a bathroom to replace the blue tarp they had been using, re-roofed the wash area that leaked terribly, re-wired all new safe electrical wiring to the house, and poured a new concrete floor for the kitchen so they would not get flooded every time it rained. Lastly, the family was given a new wood-burning stove. All of this was done through our Women’s Empowerment ministry. 

We are so thankful for your faithful partnership that allows us to continue to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people in this time!
