Putting the Y in Missions

In 2017, as dialogue began with an active LHI advocate and YMCA employee, about the prospect of leading a team from a Wisconsin YMCA to visit Esperanza Viva (EV) for a week in Mexico, both parties were intrigued. What a great opportunity to connect folks in the United States with the life-changing work happening at EV.


What Am I Missing?

The desire of our ministry is to see hearts restored and we are aware that healing and restoration take time, especially in respect to families. We reflect on the children’s journeys and find hope in the truth that they have come a long way from their first day with us.


A Week of Hope

We strive to ensure our visiting missions teams have a profound and lasting encounter with God. We want to get out of the way and allow what God has planned for each individual to take place; the results are humbling and inspiring.
