LA PUERTA ESPERANZA
La Puerta Esperanza (The Door of Hope) is a ministry that brings hope to young moms in the impoverished area of Acuna, Mexico.
In this area, teenage pregnancy is an epidemic. La Puerta Esperanza provides food, shelter and education to teenage mothers that are pregnant and continues to do so through the early lives of their children.
High School education and beyond is not free in Acuna. Dennis, the director and founder of the ministry pays for schooling and all the women stay in a house in Acuna where a house mother helps to give instruction in cooking, cleaning and caring for the girls and their babies.
Weekly, the girls attend a local church with Dennis and the house mother. They also have a Bible study through the week. Most times, the girls who call La Puerta Esperanza home have never been exposed to Jesus or the gospel. There are countless stories of the providing hand of God drawing these women into the body of Christ and being able to provide for their babies and contribute to the community.
We are proud to partner financially with this ministry as well as take yearly trips to serve in construction, kids ministry and loving the young moms.
