For centuries the church has been growing in large buildings, fancy lighting, extravagant musical productions, and predictable emotion driven services. The first century Christian were more spontaneous, all participated, share, edified in home churches. In third world countries going back to the basics is not only economically intelligent but also obedient to the design of God.
On Saturday June 4, 2016 a team of volunteer missionaries from Baltimore and as far as Kent Island came to The Hope Movement's vacant lot transformed into a Haven of Hope Community Garden to volunteer a couple of hours of their day to cut the grass, paint recycled tires that we are using as artistic flower beds, clean up trash, landscape and share of the love of Jesus to those in the community.
Rosita who we helped when she was a baby to recover from malnutrition and TB asked for prayer because she was sick her finger was swollen and hurt. She attends with her family the programs at the Haven of Hope and also attends our Bible/ Prayer Cell Group. Saturday June 4th it was raining very hard and a large storm was over the horizon but she still came alone to show us that her finger was healed. These testimonies encourages us to continue serving the Lord for those in need and especially children of the Haven of Hope in Escuintla, Guatemala.

Life is just a stepping-stone A pause before we make it home A simple place to rest and be, Until we reach eternity. Everyone has a life journey, A path to take with lots to see God guides our steps along the way, But we were never meant to stay. Our final destination is a place Filled with love, His majesty and grace. Today we celebrate the life of a loved one Who has gone before us, the race he has won. His journey has now ended, His spirit has ascended Claiming the great reward With Jesus, our Lord.

We have been blessed to have licensed Psychologists and counselors to volunteer their time at our Haven of Hope center in Escuintla, Guatemala. They often do this on a weekly bases and have developed a beautiful relationship with the children and families. The area where our center is located is consumed with poverty, dysfunctional families and youth who are growing up without morals or values.
We have a center in slum in Nuevo Amanecer located in Guatemala City. This is an area with houses stacked on top of each other on a side of a mountainside and is consumed with gang violence. Most of the children who attend our center have be orphaned by violence and incarceration. We had a beautiful church service in our center to preach the Gospel to bring transformation to the people, transforming this area into a Haven of Hope filled with the presence of God.
God has always had His hand on my life and on The Hope Movement, for this is not my ministry but His. Every month we live on faith, often not knowing how we are going to pay for the ministry expenses which over 96% goes directly to the programs. Every month not knowing who will give or what will happen, yet we continue providing thousands of meals a month, helping orphans, evangelizing, developing communities, restoring families and forming a generation of transformation, and will not stop for our faith is strong in He who all things are possible (Matthew 19:26).
Alejandra is a girl who we have known since she was a little girl and attends our Haven of Hope Center in Escuintla, Guatemala. On Wednesday we had a devotional, and ministered with the children, she was in charge of reading the Bible, and our teacher went to her home and mom told her that she was not sure if he could attend because she had several days of vomiting and diarrhea, and had taken medicine but had not improved. Her Mom asked if our teacher wanted to speak with Alejandra. She approached the door and saw her lying in a hammock, quite thin and without energy... but she said she would make the effort to go to the center, because she had the privilege of reading the Bible.
