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!
Latest prayer requests: September 2018
Living Hope International
- This month we have three benefit events called Dinner for the Kids: Taste and See… That the Lord is Good. The event in Minnesota was September 15th, and the two in Wisconsin, September 20th and 21st. Please pray for success at these important events as we desire to raise awareness and needed funds for the ongoing ministry to children and young leaders in Mexico.
- We recently received 8 new children at Esperanza Viva-Puebla; a family of 3 siblings, a family of 4 siblings and another little boy. They are all 8 years old and younger. Please pray for these precious children as they adapt to their new surroundings, dormitories and that they would begin to heal from their difficult backgrounds.
La Viña Ministry Institute
- This group of students in Level 1 is our biggest to date, with 41 students. There are many new dynamics in a group of this size, and we appreciate prayers for wisdom for staff as we lead these students in their ministry training.
- There are several students in our Level 2 course who are in the midst of deciding whether to continue for Level 3 of their training and service. Pray for guidance for each of these young people.
- This year we have several new students from Nations Church and the community near the school. Some of the students come from families of unbelievers. Please pray for our teachers and leadership for divine wisdom in teaching and guiding the students, and for the Esperanza Viva children to adjust to their classmates with grace.
- We are pleased to see growth in the church, as new people are attending and others are beginning to serve. Please pray for more new people to be reached through the weekly small groups and monthly youth and women’s events.
