Moving Day! | Bolivia Update

Countries- map

It was moving day in Bolivia. Both the Boys’ and the Girls’ homes moved into new houses this month. There was an amazing property that became available for the boys, who have been looking for more space for a year, and the homeowner also had a family member with a nice house available for the girls. These opportunities were too good to pass up. Since Bolivia is on winter break right now, it was a perfect time for both homes to pack up and move. It was an “all hands on deck” endeavor as all the staff, boys, and teams of volunteers joined in to help. Both houses required 3 huge truckloads to move to their new spaces. Loading, unloading, and putting things in their place took all day. The relationships formed in a few short days were very profound for all parties involved, and one of the volunteer families have … Continue reading

Forever Families! | Bolivia Update

Enjoy this update from our Bolivia team– Since its inception in 2013, Fundación Esperanza has grown from a single home with 18 babies and toddlers to 4 homes with 60 children in their care. While this growth has helped more children in Bolivia see God’s love through the homes, caregivers, missionaries, and volunteers, we would rather see orphanages shrink than grow!  In November 2015 Fundación Esperanza was blessed with its first ever adoption when Sofia was united with her forever family. After the first adoption, God continued to bless Fundación Esperanza with 4 more adoptions!   Here is our latest adoption story: Andrea came to the baby house of Fundación Esperanza in March of 2014 at the age of 6 months old. She was abandoned by her mother with information of a father. The social worker of Fundación Esperanza began working to identify extended family members for a possible reunification but was unsuccessful in this … Continue reading

A Christmas Celebration! | Bolivia Update

Over the recent holiday, the children in Bolivia were able to celebrate Christmas. For these precious children, the Christmas season was as much about being surrounded by those who love them as it was unwrapping the gifts under the tree. We pray these kids learn more about God this year, and that they know the love and care of people around the world who hold them up in prayer. Join the Lifesong Prayer Team to receive a monthly prayer email. We invite you to share a word of encouragement to our staff in Bolivia. To do so, comment below or on our Facebook wall and it will be forwarded to our staff. Thank you in advance for your kind words of support! Learn more about Bolivia

Mission Moment | Like a Family | Bolivia

  “Fundación Esperanza is like a family to me.” – Liz, Transition Home Liz’s Story Before entering the transition home, Liz worked hard to pay her own tuition for high school. Month after month she spent the first half of each day at her job followed by the second half of her day at school. Both required everything she had, but she made it work. Now that she has entered the transition home, she receives help for her schooling and encouragement for her journey.   Liz now feels like she belongs to a family. She considers T.J., the director of Fundación Esperanza, to be like a father and her fellow housemates like her sisters. She is grateful for this sense of acceptance and love.

Reuniting Paolo with Family

Enjoy this update from Fundación Esperanza in Bolivia… “The very first baby to enter our care at Fundación Esperanza was a little boy named Paolo. When he was just a few days old, Paolo was abandoned at the hospital. Our social worker was able to find his mother and began a series of interviews with her and the extended family.  At the time of Paolo’s birth, his mother and father were separated and out of desperation his mother felt like she had no choice but to leave him at the hospital. After some time passed, Paolo’s mother and father reunited and began the process of regaining guardianship. They both underwent psychological therapy as well as parenting classes in hopes to have Paolo come home into their care.  Upon completion, the judge ruled in favor of Paolo’s reunification with his parents. We continued following up with Paolo and his parents and were … Continue reading

Welcoming More Children to Fundación Esperanza

BOLIVIA UPDATE: Opening Our Doors to More Children Enjoy this update from Fundación Esperanza in Bolivia… “2015 is off to a great start for Fundación Esperanza (FE) in Bolivia. So far this year we’ve celebrated the opening of our transition home and we’ve welcomed 22 children from an orphanage that had to close its doors. As of February 2nd, FE now has 59 children under our care in 5 homes. Transition Home: We have welcomed 6 young ladies into the transition home who have “aged out” of other orphanages. The transition program exists to help young adults aging out of the orphanage environment to adapt to independent living while pursuing higher education or vocation. The program also exists to model and encourage responsibility based on faith in God as a firm foundation of life. Our goal is to create a secure environment where participants can study, learn life skills and … Continue reading
