THE POWER OF HOPE

Hope, it springs forth from the heart and not the brain.  Hope is the belief that circumstances will get better.  It’s more than wishing for things to get better; it’s believing with all of your heart that your circumstances will get better.  Restoring hope or giving hope to someone who has never had it can be a fulfilling experience.

It can seem hopeless in a country where the majority of the people are employed, yet most of them live well below the poverty line and make less than $1.00 per day.  Honduras has the highest crime rate in the world; this affects mostly children and teenagers.  With Honduras being the third poorest nation in Central America, you don’t have to go far to find hungry children.  It can seem hopeless.

But you could change all of that, you could give hope to the children we serve by becoming a sponsor.  Because of our sponsors we are able to give a family food each week that they otherwise would not have.  Each week our missionaries purchase staples such as rice, beans and corn meal that are put into backpacks that are taken home by children who are enrolled in school.  This is significant because many Honduran children drop out of school by age 11 to help the family with income.  Your sponsorship of a child not only gives food to a hungry child and their family, it keeps them in school and out of potentially harmful situations such as trafficking and prostitution.

When you sponsor a child in Honduras through ER International, you are giving hope to a child that her circumstances may get better.  Giving hope is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have.  Give HOPE today and you could change a child’s life.
