Village of Hope Welcomes First Child!

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. 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 … Continue reading

New Orphan Care Initiative! // Lifesong Bolivia: Fundación Esperanza

Bolivia Background The South American country of Bolivia is home to more than 13,000 orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children who live without hope every day.  Of these 13,000 children, an estimated 5,000 live within the city of Cochabamba. While a small number of adoptions do occur each year, the vast majority of these children grow up either on the streets or in orphanages and institutions, completely unaware of what it is to be loved or told they are a precious creation of God.  While the future may currently be bleak for some, Fundación Esperanza (Hope Foundation), a ministry of Lifesong for Orphans, is committed to changing the trajectory of orphaned and vulnerable children in Bolivia. Learn more about the mission of Lifesong Bolivia>> Meet the Missionaries… Our family felt the call to serve in international missions in 2008, although we didn’t know how or where.  With all of the things we … Continue reading

Reenacting the Way (of Jesus)

How can you follow Jesus when you don’t know what he was doing? Jesus’ most mysterious actions were making culturally relevant statements in his time. We can figure out what they meant and do the same today.  Reenacting the Way (of Jesus) answers each one of these questions and more. Author, speaker and professor Dr. Paul T Penley takes us beyond Jesus’ sayings and answers tough questions about his doings using brand new biblical and historical research. Readers will find that Jesus’ actions were making culturally relevant statements to his contemporaries. And we can do the same today. We are absolutely honored that Dr. Penley would chose to mention Lifesong for Orphans in his new book, Reenacting The Way (of Jesus). Listen in to his thoughts explaining his mention… Lifesong for Orphans is getting it right. The holistic care, revenue-generating projects, and support for orphans transitioning to adult life are just … Continue reading

God Sets the Lonely in Families… // February Mission Moment

Faith. Family. Home.In caring for orphans, our hope is to instil faith, family and a sense of home deep into the hearts of every child we are blessed to serve. Please enjoy this month’s Mission Moment highlighting the fruit of God’s work through us.  Baptized in the Name of the ONE True God… In a country where the worship of many gods is commonplace, lives of children are being changed and transformed by the working of Jesus Christ, the ONE true God. Lifesong India provides homes for almost 600 children who are all being exposed to the gospel of our loving, merciful and kind Father God. Baptism has always been a powerful symbol of Christianity. This symbol is especially notable in this culture because through this outward testimony of faith, children are publicly turning away from false gods to rely only on Jesus! Witness the baptism of the girls from … Continue reading

Blessings of Christmas are Evident // Lifesong India

 We invite you to share a word of encouragement to our staff at Lifesong India. To do so, please comment on the blog or on our Facebook wall and it will be forwarded to our staff. Thank you in advance for your kind words of support! Please enjoy this update from Bob Stoll, Lifesong India Director… “He raises the poor out of the dust and the needy out of the dunghill.” Psalm 113:7 This psalm describes exactly what God has been doing in our Lifesong for Orphans homes in India. The psalm comes alive and is fulfilled because of your love and your obedience to the Holy Spirit. Most of the children cared for in our homes are from the lowest caste and are truly destitute. Illiteracy, ignorance, caste discrimination and abuse have made impossible any hope of escape. But, in each of our homes, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is changing the lives of … Continue reading
