Short-Term Missions Update

It’s hard to imagine a summer without visiting teams loving and encouraging the children of Esperanza Viva. That said, we are facing the very real possibility of this for 2020 due to the coronavirus. This will leave a gaping hole in the emotional and financial care of the children. Since our first visiting teams arrived 24 years ago, we’ve felt called to truly embrace this important part of our ministry knowing that each and every visit is a divine appointment. Please be in prayer for the children, and for those who had intended to visit, for all to be encouraged and receive the Lord’s peace while trusting His timing.  Coronavirus Impact: Living Hope International
