Karen Rowan was at our place 10 days

Yesterday at the Christmas lunch here was fun but also serious when I showed the pictures of my trip to Hope House in the Philippines. I cried when I told them about the little girl who shared with me about being trafficked. My heart breaks over this because it breaks God’s heart. How can we sit idly by and do nothing while this is going on? I know it is going on everywhere, but what are we doing about it? We can cry but if we are not DOING something to help, what good is that? Let’s help, folks!! We can support places that are working to destroy sex trafficking, or we can be on the front lines and be a worker alongside others who know how to help. If your heart is being stirred by this, please DO SOMETHING!! 
You can donate to Hope House by this link https://www.gofundme.com/f/hope-house-church.

Wow we are coming to the end of another year soon. Time really does fly doesn”t it? I am so very grateful to all of you who support this ministry. I wanted to share with you what is going on here at Hope House. 
Karen Rowan was here a couple months ago and we saw an increase in our support after her visit that has been very helpful to continue with the important projects we have ongoing. A few people have donated what is for us large donations. We saw our largest donation ever of 5,000 dollars. For me its much more than money, its very humbling that people would put that much trust in us. We are very thankful for Karen coming 10 days and sharing what she saw here with us.

The House

The fourth floor is up on the house. That will be a balcony around the top and is a flat roof deck. We will be offering some free and cheap daycare for moms that are trying to work. The English school is on the third floor. We teach Bible and English at this stage of our school which I call our Gap School. 

Our Gap school

Julie Ann is our new certified teacher and she is teaching English at Hope House. Adel is in charge of children’s bible 

It is my desire to build schools for the children of the poorest in urban slum conditions. The children can only get in school once a year, so if they drop out or are no show too much etc, dont have money for projects, and thus fail, are not accepted by the other half of the population who is doing better, dont have money for lunch. They have more problems and obstacles from without and mentally from within. They need a school that understands them and makes a way for them rather than kicking them out to the wolves. These children have no chance at all without help. They dont have the support both emotional and financially and they dont have the spiritual that they need. They can be saved. We have proven that. Now the job is to save a lot more.

The Burrito Biz

We are attempting to make burritos so people without a job could go sell burritos . That project is moving along. We are working on the requirements to  get a location and generate money for Hope House. We have been making them for our feeding programs. 

The Farm

We are hoping and believing that we will be able to get a land space for a chicken farm and produce. The farm will also be a retreat for the children living in the overpopulated and crowded slums. 

Thank you for praying for all areas of our ministry here. We work to bring in those children in desperate need of support so that they can enter and stay in school. 

We are more excited than ever about our sponsoring program here at Hope House. We have been sponsoring children in Cebu City since April 2010.
We ask 30.00 a month to sponsor, or the same as one dollar a day
The sponsored children receive the support and tools they need to succeed and climb out of 3rd world poverty, and to turn and help others coming up behind them.
  • Weekly cash assistance for school 
    Food and rice 
    Activities 
    Feeding program 
    Over the counter medicines
