How We Began
Our team was started after a life-changing trip to Africa in December of 2008 with Heavenly Hope Ministries. Since that trip I have found a renewed fire burning inside of me to help the children of Africa, as well as the children in my own community. The street kids of Kampala, Uganda have changed me for good. While there, God opened my blinded eyes and stubborn ears and let the feelings of my heart pour out. I was BROKEN with a sadness that will never leave me. It is that same broken Spirit that spurs our team on and causes each of us to work diligently with the hope to change lives here and there! I am grateful for this team and realize it can only be God who brings such a passion out of the people who have not seen what my eyes have seen or heard what my ears have heard. My prayer is that each team member will have the opportunity to travel to Africa in the near future to be His hands and be His feet!
X Hope, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit on mission to empower the at-risk youth by providing hope, love, education and forever families. Both the present and future generation’s faith will be inspired through xHope Missions and our goal is to see every child placed in a forever family. Our hope is that the children impacted by this organization will carry the torch long after we are gone. We will continue to reach out where ever we can locally and internationally, with the same HOPE in mind, “every child deserves a forever family.” We are thrilled that we have had the opportunity to provide land and a forever home to Redeemer House Orphanage. The clean water, farming, agriculture, education, and family resettlement that we have provided have allowed us to see God’s faithfulness in tangible ways. May HE lead xHope Missions wherever it is that we are to go, bringing His presence with us along the way. A school is next…will you join us in making this a reality for village of Butiki?
