For the past 20 years, The West Ohio Conference has been sending VIM teams to a clinic in Nuevo Progreso, Mexico. During that same time, a Methodist Church in the neighboring colonia was growing to the point that it could support a medical clinic within its own complex. In January 2011, it was decided that West Ohio and Manos Juntas would join in full partnership, working together hand-in-hand, to provide medical care for the local community. Out of this partnership, another ministry was born – the Esperanza Viva (‘House of Hope’) children’s home, which is planned to open in spring of 2018. The House of Hope can house up to 20 children in a loving, safe environment, where they can learn, play, and be cared for in Jesus’ name.
