We make regular visits to the Orphan Home, "Casa de Hogar Belen, " led by Mamma Tonia, her family and her son Pastor Jose. I have been getting to know the children for just under a year and have fallen in love with them. The kids range in age from 2-18 and come from a poor community nearby. There is also a church on the premises led by Pastor Jose, where he both teaches and demonstrates the Love of Jesus. You will blessed as you witness some of the fruits of this precious family's gospel labor in word and deed.
