I love this place. I love the children that live here. I love the staff that work here. I love the verse behind the mission (He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents… Malachi 4:6). I love that the goal is to restore. I love that the focus is Christ. I just love this place! I am a part of the story because I live here and work here…but you can be a part of the story too! Here are a few easy ways to get involved!
- PRAY!!! We need a lot of prayer. Seriously…a lot. There are 29 kids in our care who have been through a lot and who are growing up…many of them into the adolescent years. Those are not easy years…enough said. We also fight spiritual battles on a daily basis. Why wouldn’t Satan want to steal the hearts of these kids? We are fighting for their hearts every minute of every day…and you can be a part of that. For the most up to date prayer needs, “like” us on Facebook. Here is the link.
- Sponsor a child. Have you been to La Casa de mi Padre and connected with one of our kids? Or have you seen a picture posted and couldn’t get enough of that sweet little face? I have good news for you! We have a great sponsorship program that allows you to contribute monthly towards the cost of housing, food, medicines, counseling, clothing, etc with amounts ranging from $15-$100 a month. In addition to monthly contributions, you will also get to build a relationship with one of our kids through letter writing (emails really), which the kids absolutely treasure! And who knows? Maybe you will come down and visit them someday! If you would like to sponsor a child, please send an email to email@example.com.
- Give monthly (or one time) to operations. The monthly cost of running La Casa de mi Padre is $35,000. Yep. That’s right. $35,000. We are not supported by the government, so we rely fully on private donors. To donate, please send a check written to My Father’s House International with “Operations” in the memo line and send it to: My Father’s House International, P.O. Box 20673, Roanoke, VA 24018.
Well, there you go! Three great ways to get involved with La Casa de mi Padre. If you want more information, feel free to email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
