Esperanza Viva Youth Homes rescue, train, nurture, and rehabilitate under-privileged, orphaned, abandoned and street children whose families are unable or unwilling to provide for them.  Since 1994, Esperanza Viva (EV) in Puebla, Mexico has helped provide full-time care for over 350 children.  In 2006, EV opened a second home in Matamoros, MX just across the border from Brownsville, TX.  Currently, EV has about 125 children in their full-time care!


Integral Education Center, a K-12 school, was born from the need to educate and prepare the children of Esperanza Viva for a successful future, in a country where many young people do not even finish junior high.  Many of our students had rarely, or never, attended classes before entering EV, and now have the opportunity for an education that challenges their minds and expands their horizons.






Nations Church began in 2003 with a desire to impact the city of Puebla, MX and other nations with the radical love of God and to see people mature in an intimate relationship with Him.  A major part of the vision is to minister to the children and youth of Esperanza Viva and to the community of Puebla, and to train them up as leaders through Sunday School, youth programs, conferences and more.  Nations, with a strong calling in missions, also provides legal and spiritual covering for our international missionaries, missions in remote villages, and other short-term mission trips to developing countries.


La Viña Ministry Training Center is an equipping program that consists of a four-month intensive course focused on raising up leaders to fight the problem of abandoned and neglected children around the world.  An important part of their service hours are spent directly with the children of Esperanza Viva helping with their daily care and development.   We have graduated over 300 young adults through this program, and many have moved on to full-time ministry working with children either in EV or other ministries around the world.
