We are grateful for all that God has giving us. Through His son Jesus we have the greatest gift of all, salvation. How amazing is His grace, that although we don't deserve it He died for our sins so that we can be justified, made righteous and adopted into His family. Let us never forget His great love and make every effort to be more like Christ in all that we say and do.
Thank you for being part of The Hope Movement. We pray that together 2017 will bring revival to the church and awaking throughout the nations.
MAKE A URGENT CHRISTMAS DONATION
The month of December has been difficult for The Hope Movement. Lack of donations have caused us to suspend activities and threatened to close centers, but we are trusting in God's provision as this is His vision, His work. In middle of the suffering people like the Villanueva family in Guatemala stepped up as a family and collected needed supplies to help us continue feeding the hungry. They came out this week to cook and minister to the children in our Haven of Hope Center in Escuintla, Guatemala.

Although we are feeding children who lack food at home, although we are educating children who lack education from parents, the most important seed we can plant in their hearts is the Gospel.

On November 17th we organized an event sponsored by Walmart called "Sponsor a child, with a Gift" celebrating the month of the child.
They chose the "Haven of Hope because they searched several options throughout the entire city and could not find an option. One of the mothers of the children who attend our Haven of Hope center suggested The Hope Movement and so they selected us to organize this event. They provided the chairs, shirts, pinatas, and gifts for over 60 children.
Volunteers from local stores came out to assist as well.
Meet just one of the hundreds of children we serve each day. Nahomy is 3 years old and regularly attends our activities in the Haven of Hope in Escuintla, Guatemala. Her father in currently in prison unjustifiable in Peten, Guatemala (Northern region of Guatemala in the jungles) and we have been supporting by providing daily meals to Nahomy and her family, but the wonderful thing is in an act of gratitude her family donate vegetables when they can to the center to feed other children.
We have been blessed to have a volunteer Samuel Maldonado in our Haven of Hope Center in Escuintla, Guatemala. He will be assisting 2 or 3 times a week teaching the children to play piano, guitar and flute. Music is a powerful tool to teach discipline, coordination and increase self-esteem. We pray that through donations we can hire him to work part-time on a consistent basis to develop a music program which has been a goal for our founder, Jonathan Roiz, a musician and songwriter.
The month of December has started off being difficult financially because of lack of donations, but we are trusting God to provide in order to continue His work. We URGENTLY need funds to provide for needed food for our orphans in Kenya and to continue our feeding and education programs in Guatemala.
I thank you, Lord, with all my heart; I sing praise to you before the gods. I face your holy Temple, bow down, and praise your name because of your constant love and faithfulness,because you have shown that your name and your commands are supreme.You answered me when I called to you; with your strength you strengthened me. All the kings in the world will praise you, Lord, because they have heard your promises. They will sing about what you have done and about your great glory. Even though you are so high above, you care for the lowly, and the proud cannot hide from you. When I am surrounded by troubles, you keep me safe. You oppose my angry enemies and save me by your power. You will do everything you have promised; Lord, your love is eternal. Complete the work that you have begun. — Psalm 138
This past September we traveled to Bungoma, Kenya and shared the Gospel. Many said they never heard this Gospel straight from the Bible because most missionaries come only to recruit people to their denomination, or put on a show but never truly teach what the Bible says. So we taught Theology 101, everything you didn't learn in Sunday School. Teaching about who is God, our purpose to glorify Him, sin and depravity, justification, adoption, sanctification and revival. We left with them a manual we created so that they can continue this study and grow. The Bible studies are continuing and the people are growing spiritually as they study the word of God.
