Village of Hope Welcomes First Child!

country update GUATEMALA
Please enjoy this update from Lifesong Guatemala: Village of Hope

After almost a year of paperwork, Village of Hope has finally received our official license from the Guatemalan government! Our doors are open to begin welcoming children! The first child came through our doors just 2 days after we were licensed.

VOH1

Meet Andres, a sweet little 1 month old who is HIV+. Born 2 months premature, he spent the first month of his life in a hospital.  Andres’ mother, from remote Guatemalan village, was unable to care for him and we are thankful for God’s provision in his life to bring him to Village of Hope. We welcomed Andres with open arms and thrilled to give him a home to be loved and cared for by his Guatemalan houseparents at Village of Hope.” Would you please join us in prayer for our Guatemalan house parents & little Andres? Pray that God’s spirit would be in them with love, peace and wisdom — that above all they would glorify you in their action and words. Pray for Andres that he would thrive and grow in his new home, that he will grow up loving and following the Lord.

    Praying for the house parents and little Andres. What a precious little guy who has already overcome many obstacles. God has prepared a place for him here on earth. Hugs from the US to him.
