In August 2017 a team traveled to Ghana to visit the children at The Village of Hope to see first-hand what has transpired in the short span of one year. Although we had visited previously for the dedication ceremony, this was different. For the first time, these children were welcoming their friends into their home. The children welcomed us with open arms, open hearts and with singing and dancing.

We had the opportunity to spend quality time with them and hear their stories. It was heart-warming to hear the children tell of their aspirations of becoming nurses, farmers, pastors and yes, even president. The transformation has been nothing short of miraculous, and for those who traveled on this journey, the experience was life-changing. One was left with the definite impression that the children are well-loved, and will fulfill their God-given destiny.
