The college students are all grown up! Taller is the first and most noticeable change. When we take a deeper look at the past, we can see the drastic changes today.
Nearly 15 years ago as an organization bringing up children in safe homes with pastors, today we reunified 550 children to live with biological families and be discipled in Jesus.
Looking at where we’ve come, to what a college gathering looks like today, is a stark difference.
The 250 students currently in school is an astronomical number. It’s even going to double in the next 2-3 years!
Their height is not to only thing we see.
Their hearts are growing stronger for God. In 2019 the largest group baptism of 60 children took place. Now, 3 years later and off to colleges, these students are bringing their love for God with them into their next chapter.
When Restoring Hope started with 8 homes in 2008, we only dreamed of the futures the 80 children could have. Now we actually see who they’ve become!
Already we see lives changed. Once children in need of hope and a future, now can begin to rise out of poverty as they become college graduates!
The recent college gathering happened while the Director was traveling. Compiled footage of the weekend shows just how much taller they stand. See here for the montage.
