Hope City is excited to partner with Penny Williams, a member of Hope City. Penny birthed the dream and vision best known as Seeds of Hope in November 2011. Her vision is to see all people - but specifically the people of Costa Rica living in complete freedom and pursuing the calling God has for them. Although statistics may say otherwise, Penny believes that Costa Rica can one day be a place where all people are educated and empowered to not only break the cycle, but be the change to stop the cycle of labels that have defined them in the past. The mission of Seeds of Hope is to prevent human trafficking , drug addiction, alcoholism, violence, and dropping out of school. They strive to empower and educate students in high-risk communities with life skills and to motivate them to break the silence.
This trip is geared toward introducing team members to the rich culture of Costa Rica, meeting and ministering with children in schools and women of all ages. Team members will have the opportunity to build relationships with many people that find a safe haven within Seeds of Hope and share the love of Jesus within the community.
Joyce Meyer Ministries planted the St. Louis Dream Center in 2000 with the faith that this organization would give hurting people the ability to dream again. Today, the St. Louis Dream Center is home to an 800 member, multicultural family that has been restored and empowered to reach hurting people. From restoring addicts to loving impoverished children to ministering to the elderly, the St. Louis Dream Center is making a difference in the lives of hundreds in the St. Louis community.
Our mission team will work alongside the St. Louis Dream Center. This mission team may participate in numerous activities, including hosting children’s services in local neighborhoods, visiting nursing homes, distributing food and clothing, praying for people in the streets, attending church at the Dream Center, and more.
Team members will be the hands and feet of Jesus on this trip as we love the broken and watch lives change through the power of Jesus! We welcome you to ask the Lord if you are supposed to be a part of this life-changing experience.
