HOLISTIC HOPE IN THE JUNGLES OF ECUADOR
"For the Lord is close to the brokenhearted and
saves those who are crushed in Spirit."
Why Holistic Hope?
Holistic (adj.): relating to or concerned with wholes or with complete systems rather than with the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts.
Hope (n): desire accompanied by expectation of or belief in fulfillment.
The hope of Christ does not dissect our lives into tiny pieces, but rather provides for us in full. The mission of the
Ecuador Hope House is to "give every girl the opportunity for a thriving future through education, life skills, and eternal hope."
As both a Social Worker and Missionary Associate, I aim to serve the girls at the Ecuador Hope House by helping address their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs through the only Holistic Hope I know:
the restoration of Jesus.
