Today was a historical day at Hope Children’s Home. We were honored to have Governor Rick Scott here on our campus! Around 200 people including many from the community, local churches, news media, and our children and staff gathered as we listened to the governor speak of his care and concern for children. We also had the opportunity to hear from Representative James Grant and Mr. Bill Bunkley, a Christian political columnist and commentator. Belen, one of our college students, shared her testimony of how Hope has helped her and her four siblings stay together as a family when they came to Hope over nine years ago. The event ended with all of our children singing a special song for the governor, “In God We Trust.”
Following the event, the children had a great time playing on the playground with Governor Scott and taking some selfies! We are so blessed that the Lord allowed this opportunity for us to share what work He has done here at Hope in the lives of these children. It was an honor to host this special event, and we hope it is something the children will never forget.
