our mission and vision
Motto: HEAL, GROW, THRIVE IN CHRIST
TO BRING CHRIST’S HEALING LOVE TO THE CHILDREN OF BOLIVIA.
TO PROVIDE A PLACE OF SAFETY, SUPPORT, AND MENTORSHIP FOR UNDERPRIVILEGED YOUTH.
As we study the life of Christ revealed in the four gospels, we see time and again that Jesus often healed people physically and emotionally before presenting them with great spiritual truths.
In Bolivia, where nearly 80% of children have suffered physical, psychological and/or sexual abuse in their homes, we see a great need for this healing touch. Eben-Ezer will be a safe place where children and young people can come as they are and experience healing in Christ. Staff will understand and be committed to the healing process of each individual.
As they move through the healing process and begin to experience healthy, loving relationships with staff and other students, they will, in turn, learn more and more about God’s unconditional love for them. They will be ready to hear about His plan for their lives and will begin to grow in Him.
After experiencing true healing and life transformation by the power of the Holy Spirit, they will begin to thrive in Christ and will naturally desire to share this experience with others. They will be equipped to share the life-changing Gospel—the good news about who Jesus is and what He has done—within their sphere of influence.
