Our Vision at Agape Children's Village
Upon returning home after our heartbreaking visit to ACV in 2010, we spoke to the pastors and boards at Calvary Chapel Lake Arrowhead and The Bridge Calvary Chapel. After seeking the Lord for many weeks, the vision for HOPE Ministries was born. We decided to take over full financial responsibility of the orphanage, at least for a time. On top of financially supporting the orphanage, we felt that ACV needed spiritual, moral, and emotional guidance to help them get through this rough season. We saw it necessary to send a couple from one of our churches to live at the orphanage for a year. We sensed this was the best way to disperse the funds and to get ACV back on its feet again. Mark and Vickie White took a step of faith, and were there from January 2011 until November 2011. God used them in big ways to accomplish His good work at the orphanage. The next couple to step into the their shoes is a family that God has provided who are perfect for the job. Bill and Danyal James, along with their kids Natalie and Nicolas, will be in Uganda for this coming year. They will be arriving at the Village at the end of January 2012. We are all very excited to see how God is going to use this entire family for His work at the Village. Please keep this family in your prayers as they minister to God’s kids at ACV.
