Their vision: "Hope of Life International began with a single outreach to the elderly in 1987, and now encompasses over 3,000 acres with dozens of ministry outreaches. As a fully functioning humanitarian organization, our vision is to provide "hope of life" to the people of Guatemala. By meeting the physical and economical needs of the less fortunate, we are able to share the love of Christ in a more tangible way, thus giving them the greatest gift of all."
|This little one stole my heart from that very first day. Emilio.|
|This was all at "Kelly's House," the home for special need children. They have therapy sessions every day according to their individual needs, and like I mentioned most of them have seen such amazing progress.|
|At the Orphanage with a few of my favorite little family of sisters! Immediately they decided we were friends and were in our arms any chance we had to visit. Little dolls :)|
Every new place we saw included a miraculous story behind how it was started. It was so inspiring to see the hand of God throughout all of it. It's an out of body kind of experience really. When you've waited so long and worked so hard to get someplace, and then all the sudden you're there. Finally. And each day was different from what I expected, but so so much better than I could have ever imagined. I hope a day won't go by that I don't think of this place! It looks like it's going to take a few more "parts" to get through all of the pictures and stories, but I'm definitely OK with that ;)
