Pray with Us!
God answers prayer, and His hand moves mountains for the ministries of Living Hope International. We have witnessed miracles in many lives as a result of prayer, and we rely on your prayers to support every aspect of this ministry.
Please pray for the children, youth, and adults whom God has placed in our path, that they may fully receive His love and mercy. We ask God for the healing and restoration of each child at Esperanza Viva Youth Homes and their families.
Pray for provision of strength, vision, and resources for the leaders and staff to give all the glory to the Lord.
Pray for a great harvest of souls, that God will send out laborers into His fields that are ripe with people who need to hear His good news. Please join us in praise and petition to God for His will to be fully realized!

Pray that the transition will go smoothly and that healthy bonds will be made between these supervisors and our children.
