The original mission of the Hacienda of Hope was to provide a home for the abandoned children of Ecuador. Having opened in 2003, forty children are currently being served by the orphanage. We envision serving hundreds of children who would have otherwise lived in the streets and to witness them being transformed by God’s love, then seeing them experience the sense of worth that comes from a good education. God’s call to serve the children of the region led us to the establishment of the School of Hope. This bilingual school quickly developed a reputation in the region for excellence while providing spiritual enrichment to over 250 students and their families.
Amazing progress continues to be made as we are completing Casa Esther, a home of teenage mothers. Teenage pregnancy is a serious issue in Ecuador and the mothers often have little hope of providing for these precious babies. In this way, the Hacienda of Hope continues our focus of finding ways to support the children of Ecuador and thus demonstrating the love of Jesus through our actions.
To God be the glory!
