Inspiring and empowering children who are orphaned or living on the street, and youth at risk throughout Latin America to have a future of hope and opportunity!
To advocate for and minister to children who are orphaned or living on the street, and youth at risk throughout Latin America; networking with existing ministries, churches, businesses and individuals to develop strategies and implementation that will offer these children Christ-centered hope, stability, love, and an opportunity-filled future.
Evaluating successful Christian ministries that are already working with these children… networking them to be complimentary with each other and use their strengths to increase the potential effect we can have among these children. ALSO, networking the children to successful Christian ministries, businesses, churches, and people within their own cultures and societies to have a greater potential for success.
2.) New Homes
Creating New Homes of Hope throughout Latin America for these children… We are NOT looking to create orphanages, but rather homes with Christian married couples (male & female couples) to be house parents of 6 to 10 children who are orphaned living in the home! This will be a great way to help develop some stability, physically, emotionally, and spiritually for the children; while trying to help prepare them to be successful contributing participants in their culture and society!
Educating the children spiritually, academically, and for specific trades, and to educate others in the poor communities on ways of trying to move out of poverty; spiritual poverty, physical poverty, and even emotional poverty. Also, imparting knowledge and educating to the general population about the plight of these children, and inviting others to become involved.
Red is for the blood of Jesus Christ… our biggest advocate (abogar). May Jesus Christ be our example and model of humility and sacrifice as we advocate for these children.
Black is the presence of all colors of the color wheel. May we not see or make distinction between orphaned children, street children, at risk youth, ‘normal’ children, Hispanics, Americans, etc. Black represents an international approach for our ministry, and an appreciation of diversity, though specifically focused in Latin America.
Blue is like the sky and ocean… beautiful and full and they go on for what seems like forever… may the ministries of AbogarIM be beautiful and full and go on for what seems like forever, until the return of our Lord and King, Jesus Christ.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. — James 1:27
