Reconnecting with Casa Esperanza

8 Jan

Exactly two years ago God began the process of bringing lives together to love and serve.  Friends who are an extended part of the Reflejo Community heard God’s call to begin helping a local home for abused and abandoned women and their children.  As a result, Terra Nova church of Irvine, CA, NieuCommunities from San Diego, and Reflejo from here in Ensenada began working together to bless Casa Esperanza and assist them in their faithful ministry to these families in need.

Over these last two years we have been blessed to meet with the women, get to know them, share testimonies together, pray and even make tamales.  We have played with the kids and made lots of craft projects.  As people have used their gifts and skills, hair cuts have been given; cars and bikes have been repaired; a chicken coop was built and equipped; the dream of a library was fulfilled; as well as several construction projects on the facilities.  It truly has been amazing to watch what God has done through this united and cooperative effort.  Another rewarding aspect of the work here is that one family in our Reflejo community continues to go on their own each month to bring food, diapers and other supplies for the ministry.

During the time we have been connected with Casa Esperanza, we have seen God bring new and committed people to serve full time with this ministry.  It is so exciting to see the fruit that is God is producing through the faithful service of these individuals and families.

I have corresponded with a couple of them and today one of the Co-Directors sent a message and included a link to his new blog:

I pass it on to you as it really shares in words and pictures the heart of this important and much needed ministry.

We are expectant for how God will continue to bless the work of Casa Esperanza and all those who live and serve there and likewise, how He will lead us to be involved in that process.
