Partnering in Ministry
Rancho La Hermosa is an orphanage in Primo Tapia which provides incredible care for orphaned and abandoned children through small family units, led by house parents. They have onsite education, strong connections with the local church and a mission to display Christ’s love daily to one another and those around them. Serving alongside the leadership of Rancho la Hermosa is an absolute privilege. The children are there for various reasons, but the reality is most have living parents, simply not parents willing or able to care for them. The feeling of abandonment can be damaging, which is an important reason ministries like La Hermosa are so necessary in developing countries. With this partnership, we get to focus on loving well through fitness, education and helping with special projects. As a family, we enjoy sharing our passion for sport, and individually we are focused on teaching English (Amanda), and helping with special projects (Shane). In all, we are so thankful for opportunities to help care for these vulnerable children.
