I earned my college degree in Business in 2007 which meant the door to all my dreams had opened however, God had different plans for me. He gave me a vision. I saw myself opening big cages with thick silver bars. As I opened it, there were hundreds of children coming out. I saw myself clothing them, feeding them, hugging them and I heard a voice say “bring the children back to the Father”. I knew I was being called to the children but I didn’t know where or when. Along with an incredible team, we are now fighting for the kids from the garbage dump in Xela to have a life worthy of a child of God. Its such a beautiful adventure! In the garbage dump, among the bad smells and flies, the dust in the villages, incredible are the places where the love and grace of God have become tangible to me. I would like to thank you and welcome you to this journey of love and faith. A journey where we everyday see prayers answered and dreams come true.
