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!

 

 

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

First visit several years ago was confusing. First visit this summer, I was impressed with the service and the friendliness of the people. I was impressed with the focus on community. The openness, the understanding that the church is part of the world and local community.

I have always felt loved here. No one has ever judged me or made me feel less during any of my trials.

I consider the hearts of the people at Twickenham to be one of the greatest strengths. I have seen people quietly serve in so many ways and walk out life together. I also believe that the resources of the congregation can be a huge strength. Together, there is such a huge opportunity for ministry.
