Dear OWH Family,
Looking back over nearly 15 years of ministry, it is difficult to imagine the enormous magnitude of food that has been provided to Guatemalan families, the illnesses that have been treated, and the faith and hope that has been instilled as Outreach for World Hope staff and volunteers administered self-sustaining anti-poverty projects provided by the generosity of you, our family. The impact you have made is immeasurable.
Each morning as I feed our eight-year-old son breakfast and pack a lunch for his backpack, I am grateful for the nourishment I am able to offer him without even minimal struggle. Then I drive him to school. School, where he is receiving an education that will enable him to easily provide for his own children. As parents, we stress the importance of education to our children as a key to their success in life. Following health and spiritual growth, it is a top priority that provides opportunity and prosperity. The food we offer them today will not provide them with food for the future. Likewise, the food we are providing our children in Guatemala will not feed their children. It will not prevent them from facing a lifetime of poverty due to lack of opportunity.
As a growing ministry, there seems to be a logical next step. Although we have contributed to the education of children by building schools and providing computers and supplies, we feel it is time to begin a scholarship program through which university level education will offer the promise of a better future. Various curriculum choices are available and within reach to those we serve logistically but not financially.
Together we can change the trajectory of the lives of deserving students. For details on this exciting new program and to learn how you can help, please click the "Recent News" tab above.
From The Founders
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
We would like to assure you that this program will in no way interfere with our nutrition programs. God’s Word has left us clear instructions about feeding the poor and caring for the widows and orphans.
A severely malnourished child will never be denied help due to resources allocated to OWH programs that offer sustainable pathways out of poverty. Saving lives will always come first.
We continue to thank God for His provision through your generosity and prayers.
