MISSION PURPOSE/VISION STATEMENT:
Our vision is to serve God through serving the needy children of Mexico - children who come to us from broken homes or from no home at all, and who have learned to make a life for themselves on the streets. Through City of Refuge Children’s Home, we are able to provide a loving family environment for children who have seen and experienced abuse, neglect and extreme poverty.
We would like to provide more training for the staff since we are seeing more psychological and spiritual damage in the children who arrive at the home. We want to be able to serve them better. Also with such a large number of new staff, we need to work on creating deeper love bonds and carving out times for fellowship among us. This will help us to be more united in our work and ministry to the children.
God has made my dream of a bigger home, where children can run freely, a reality. Our young people who have been raised with us are now preaching and involved in praise bands. Over the last 44 years, the staff has seen many miracles. What a job it is to see the smile of a child who once was hungry and now is fed, who once was cold and now is warm, who once was abused, and now is loved.
