A Fresh Perspective: A Love for Life

April 5, 2019

When Pastor Richard first approached John and Alice about a marriage workshop at their

church, they were skeptical.

Married at eighteen and nineteen, they had lived together for 26 years and had nine children. They had grown apart as each of them viewed their money and work as just their own– the only thing they felt in common anymore was a shared home and their children.

Cooking with Love

April 5, 2019

As children arrive at the Children’s Care Center, the smell of hearty vegetable soup fills the air.

Twice a week 50–60 youth come together at one of our partner churches in Oruro, Bolivia, to get homework help, spiritual input and a nutritious meal cooked by Madriana and two other women.

Meet Mark and Trisha Heekin, long-time Bright Hope Allies and owners of Daniel’s Textile Rental in the greater Cincinatti area.

Time, Treasure, Talent and Tootsie Rolls

April 5, 2019

I was on my first ever trip to Haiti, visiting a Bright Hope feeding project. We were playing an ice-breaker game where the children would get a small Tootsie Roll for correctly answering questions. When a child won the first piece of candy, he broke it up into six tiny pieces and shared it with the children around him.
