Due to the nature of running a family-style children’s home and making sure that we are truly investing in the lives of the families living at Village of Hope, it is important that we limit the number of outside visitors and missions teams that are serving alongside us in Guatemala. Lifesong screens each team application in order to be strategic in our ministry. Please include in your application how you see yourself and/or your team being invested long-term at Village of Hope.
