While it is hard to sum up what we do as missionaries…here are three types of work we are involved in
Much like any other community, Sucúa and it's surrounding communities, are filled with young children, youth, and families. Many of them are in vulnerable, unhealthy, and sometimes dangerous situations. Children are abandoned by their parents. Young girls are being physically and sexually abused. Children aren't being fed or sent to school. Men and women are without jobs. Children and young youth are growing up without a father or a mother.
However, unlike the U.S. Sucúa does not have the resources to help the children, youth, and adults who make up these families.
We want to help "Rescue" them. Our desire is to be the hands and feet of Christ and show them HIS HOPE as a means of Rescue.
The individual and family situations that we come in contact with are difficult.
While money will change their physical situation, true change and restoration will happen through deep, and meaningful relationships.
We want to help facilitate the rebuilding process with counseling, social workers, listening ears, and sound biblical advice!
God's vision and desire is for the family unit to be together. Through the foster home project (Casa Rescate/The Resuce Home), we want to promote family unity! Click below if you'd like more information on the Foster Home Project: Casa Rescate/Rescue Home
We know we won't be able to RESCUE everyone from their situation, children and youth growing up without parents, we can't make their parents come back...but WE can help RESCUE the future families by pouring into young adults who will be forming those future families.
That is why we have a heart for the youth in Sucua! We want to help rebuild their idea/concept of family, so that they can build a healthier family for themselves.
We know that it is only WITH GOD that true restoration takes place. We feel privileged that he would use us as His tools in this process.
Our goal is to be able to send children back to a healthy and restored family and home environment, where the whole family will be able to grow and flourish!
We know that this will take time! This will not happen over night! However, we are wanting and willing to put in the time and resources to allow for true restoration!
We also want to encourage personal transformation and restoration for the individual children and youth we will be working with.
