SATURDAY NEW HOPE OUTREACH
Our Heart for Prevention
Our first house in the barrio is a living testimony of all that God has done in and through New Hope. Every wall and every item within has a miracle story. God breathed life and challenged us not to despise our small beginnings. We learned to be faithful with the little we had in our hand and believed that more would come. We brought our first girls here, this was our first home. It is a place where we have seen some of the most significant transformation and we knew that when we moved we still needed our little mansion on the hill. Instead of removing our presence from the barrio, one of our women started a weekly outreach where dozens of girls from the streets below come and join in a time of teaching, discipleship and friendship. It is a space that we see as our arm of prevention, offering stability to the girls in the barrio as they navigate the difficulties of their upbringing and origin. They know they have a door to knock on, a shoulder to cry on, a listening ear and a safe place when they need it.
We began in a small barrio in the Dominican Republic and have truly never left. We continue to hold little hands giving them the support they need to grow and make choices that will preserve their worth and dignity. This is an opportunity to “roar” against the generations of bondage and sexual perversion. What was meant for dead, we are claiming as life—full of promise and Hope.
