Casa de la Esperanza. A House of Hope.

Spiritual Direction at Casa

Matthew 22: 36-39 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?" Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with al your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"

These verses draw an undeniably clear perspective of God's view regarding the ultimate purpose and focus of all our earthly endeavors. These verses thus serve to frame the mission and daily activities at Casa de la Esperanza. In affect these verses define wherein true hope lies: our name House of Hope. Our children are taught from the word of life each and every day. They are taught: to love and honor God, to work and be industrious, to study and develop their talents and abilities for the good of their service in the Lord. They are taught to be honest, kind, and considerate of others and to love thy neighbor as themselves. Casa de la Esperanza is dedicated to the purpose of serving God in the service of His children living at Casa. We are ever attentive to the influences and examples of staff and all of our organizational activities that effectively shape the children's life directing attitudes and values towards this stated purpose.

Worshiping with the children

From the time they are small children, the kids at Casa have the opportunity to witness the lives of Christian missionaries, be a part of nightly devotionals as well as Sunday School and church services. Our nightly bible studies encourage the children to develop their own love for Christ and also show them how to develop a routine for daily study. The children are divided into two groups depending on their spiritual maturity and needs. They participate and learn what they need to know to live Christian lives. Church services are held here at Casa in our Larry English Center. People from the community are picked up to join in the time of worship. The young men at Casa who have been baptized join the missionaries and play an active role each week. In the past nine years there have been 56 baptisms including community members and youth from Casa. Please continue to pray for all of the church and young Christians here in Anahuac.
