Since we started GiveHope2Kids, we have had some great volunteers walk these paths, teach classes, play with kids, and just in general get the job done. We always hope and pray that the time they spend here leaves an imprint on their worldview and changes their lives for the better. The hard part with volunteers is saying good-bye, parting ways, and not knowing when our paths will cross again.
We've just had to say good-bye again. In the month of August, we had two volunteer families head off to the next adventure. But even in seeing them leave, we are excited for their futures and what God will do through them. They are headed out with the long-term goal of launching more homes for orphaned and abandoned children!
It is humbling and exciting to see God use our imperfect selves to help plant other Children's Homes. Both of these families saw GiveHope2Kids as their training ground, so we can pass on the model of a family-style and community-focused Children's Home.
To the Johnsons and the Bakers, we want to say thank you for the time you served here. We want you to know that we are praying God's fullest blessings upon you as follow his path for your lives.
Kelvin & Monica Johnson served with us for 2 1/2 years and you can now find them in Ecuador.
Jacob & Cynthia Baker volunteered here for just over a year. Their family will soon be headed to India.
