In June 2016, 13 people traveled with Here I Am Orphan Ministries to Bogota, Colombia. Our team partnered with Colombian churches to conduct recreational activities, crafts and English lessons for children in 6 orphanages. The team also delivered clothes and sleep sacks to the orphanages they visited.
Four members of the team were adopted from Colombia, and they gave their testimonies throughout the trip. The team continued to develop relationships with local churches and government officials. Partnering with local churches during the trip exposes them to the ongoing needs of the children in the orphanages and empowers them to provide support after the team leaves. Because of generous donations, the team purchased 500 Spanish Bibles for children in Colombian orphanages, and the local churches will hand them out during their monthly visits.
