No one has ever seen God. Or have they?
When it comes to providing a full continuum of support for orphans and vulnerable children, the topic of residential care has been a lightning rod for more than a century. Opinions are often polarizing, and those who long to serve orphans often find themselves in the crossfire of heated arguments.
Faith Explosion Kid’s Camp may be small in scale but its impact spreads far beyond its facility in Lone Star, Texas. The camp evangelizes children in third to sixth grades providing them with a fun and safe place to worship and grow in their faith. This summer, the children learned about the opportunity to touch the lives of children in rural Guatemala and immediately sprung to action.
We are honored to work alongside amazing, faith-filled friends in every country we serve. They are our "boots on the ground" brothers and sisters in Christ who work with orphans, vulnerable children, families daily, and they advocate to community and church leaders, and government officials. They are the ones first to hear the stories of pain - and the stories of hope. Dan and Christi Ucherek are full-time missionaries serving in Guatemala. She manages our sponsorship program there, and he oversees the Community Care Center in Chimaltenango. Their latest testimony gives a peek into the transformative work happening there.
On a recent mission trip, we took the children of San Jose Orphanage to the Caves of Taulabe.
