I have been working to rescue and to help orphaned children for over 30 years now, and I will continue to do so. My husband, David and I were called by God to establish a children’s home in Guatemala. And I will tell you the truth, that many in the Church frowned upon those of us that worked with God’s kids. For some reason, fellow ministers had the idea that if you rescued and raised these children you were not a legitimate ministry, perhaps a glorified babysitting service to be admired at best. And then there were the trolls, that used our work for their gain. Nevertheless, I knew in my heart that both camps were wrong. Why? Because I know the love of the Father for His hurting children across the world.
I witnessed firsthand the corruption of the government, and governing agencies around the world that say they are fighting for the rights and welfare of the children but were only in this for their own selfish gain, and the children suffered because of their rulings.
I was the one that God gave the eagle eye (spiritual discernment) to spot and fight off the predators. And believe me they come in all shapes and sizes, both male and female, young and old. But then again, this is the heart of a true mother to protect their children.
I never worked so hard physically as I did for 25 years in the children’s home, especially in the beginning years when we were first building the homes, with no running water, and poor electricity, 17 children (12 boys fresh off the streets (7 were bedwetters from all the abuse), and then 5 babies). And then the next assignment was 14 babies and toddlers. Life was physically hard, but it was rewarding at the same time. It was here that the Lord taught me how to heal the sick, raise the dead, and deliver the oppressed and the possessed. And from this place the healing ministry went worldwide.
And now 30 years later we found a faithful, gifted, God-fearing director of the children’s home to take our place—our son, Joaquin, his wife Rose with their beautiful children. :O)
I will be honest with you that my heart has been broken more times than I care to remember by the betrayal and slander of God’s people. But if anything was gained by all of this was that it pushed me to my knees up on the rooftop of our home on the campus where I spent night after night in deep intercession for all the children and workers in the home. And I know this is where all the miraculous events that took place during those 25 years of the hardest work I have ever done were conceived. And for this, I can glorify God in all situations.
I witnessed teams of people and individuals that came down to the children’s home to help. And I can honestly say that I have met some real gems in God’s kingdom, that are lifetime friends. Godly individuals that I can turn to for help when the children’s home has a need. And they are my forever friends.
I will be heading down to Guatemala from October 24th – 30th, 2023 where I will be making my yearly trip to deliver the Christmas gifts for the children and the workers, school supplies for the new school year that runs from January through October, purchasing emergency food, and daily supplies for the children, having daily activities, and making special meals and dining with them during the evenings (sometimes mornings), taking them out shopping for new shoes and clothes at the local market (where the kids pick out their own shoes and outfit of their choice), ordering pizza, and going out for ice cream in the nearby town. And in the midst of all of this, I will be ministering at a Church or two, and as always planning a special night of ministry for all the children (inviting the music team of the local Church to come out and lead us in a time of worship) where I teach the kids to raise their hands, bow down on their knees as we cry out to God together to heal their broken hearts from the past. It’s always a blessed week. It’s sort of like living out a year’s worth of activities that I would normally do with them, but in a week’s time.
And to my delight, God asked me this year to invite specific “forever friends” of mine to join me for this amazing week of ministry to the children in our children’s home. They are individuals that have helped me out time and time again over the years.
These are the needs of the children that I need your help to meet in the name of Jesus.
- Funds for shoes, clothing, emergency food, and daily supplies.
- Funds for new bedding supplies (mattresses, pillows, sheets, and blankets).
- Funds for their schooling needs for the year 2024 (tuition [about $30 / student / month], schoolbooks, uniforms, bussing, and lunches).
- And we need funds for a brand-new van for the children’s home. (About $40,000 US dollars). We are about 1/2 of the way there but need your help to raise the rest of the funds. As of today, they are without a van to take the children to school, appointments, Church, and outings. Would you kindly and generously give what you are able to give to meet this need?
