ABINA’S Annual Chili-Challenge for
COSTA RICA ORPHANS!
” ABINA’S 2013 ANNUAL CHILI CHALLENGE HIGHLIGHTS VIDEO“…
ABINA means, “A Blessing In A…..”
We purposely left the end open to allow a place for you to bless abandoned and at-risk children in Central and North America.
ABINA DONORS and VOLUNTEERS:
Thank you for your of generous contributions to the children through ABINA Orphan Project Ministries….
Your giving has played a vital role in preparing permanent family-style group homes for un-adopted children.
The first home ABINA helped Residence of Life re-model was located in Atenas, Costa Rica. After the lease was up on this home, Residence of Life purchased a home in Grecia, Costa Rica. This home is for children under the age of thirteen. This year in Grecia, 2018, a second home was established for ten teen-age girls.
There is always work to be done!
We trust God’s Plan for their future is one to prosper them; to give them hope, love, and something no one can take from them, “the love of Jesus Christ.”
Thank you for helping provide relief for children who were removed from harmful environments and at risk of becoming victims of unthinkable criminal acts!
It is a blessing to know that the children now sleep comfortably in their beds, in a safe home and do not have to worry where their next meal will come from. They no longer have to wonder who will love and care for them. Their new mom and excellent caregivers see to it that the children’s everyday care needs are met, that they attend school and church regularly and have good friends in the community.
To God Be The Glory!
Believing that All Things Come From God and for His Purpose, we want to thank our donors and friends for your part in His Plan.
The need is great, and there are many more children in waiting for a home to call their own, and Lord Willing, our goal to help Cherie build 10 group homes will become a reality. What’s needed most are prayers for financial support to purchase of land in which to build the homes on.

In 2016 we are celebrating our 6th year of New Beginnings and Blessings …

Happy First Day of Spring and New Beginnings,
I wanted to reach out and ask if you know of any non-profit organizations helping migrant children in the United States?
Just as it may be with you, I am feeling overwhelmed with the surge of migrant children and God nudging me to do something.
It is the same way God nudged me to help Cherie prepare Residencia de Vida for the first children. It’s the same nudge I felt when He helped us start ABINA Ministries.
Cherie and I use to say, “If only we could bring Residence of Life children to the United States. How much easier it would be to care for them.”
Fast forward 10 years and 15,000 thousand children here in the U.S.A. and I’m pondering what to do.
I can’t talk with my dear friend Cherie, but I can reach out to you for your thoughts and prayers.
Please send me a message or leave a comment. I truly want and need to hear your hearts perspectives.
God Bless You All…please pray for the children caught in the middle.
¡Feliz primer día de primavera y nuevos comienzos!
Quería comunicarme y preguntarle si conoce alguna organización sin fines de lucro que ayude a los niños migrantes en los Estados Unidos. Así como puede ser contigo, me siento abrumado por la oleada de niños migrantes y Dios me empuja a hacer algo. Es de la misma manera que me dio un codazo para que ayudara a Cherie a preparar la Residencia de Vida para los primeros niños. Es el mismo empujón que sentí cuando nos ayudó a comenzar ABINA Ministries. Cherie y yo solíamos decir: “Si tan solo pudiéramos traer niños de RdV a los Estados Unidos. Cuánto más fácil sería cuidarlos”. Avance rápido 10 años y 15,000 mil niños aquí en los EE. UU. Y estoy reflexionando sobre qué hacer. No puedo hablar con mi querida amiga Cherie, pero puedo comunicarme con usted para escuchar sus pensamientos y oraciones. Por favor envíeme un mensaje o deje un comentario. Realmente quiero y necesito escuchar las perspectivas de su corazón. Dios los bendiga a todos…oran por los ninos!
A BLESSING IN A BED, TEN AGAIN, REFLECTIONS…..
We did it!
ABINA Ministries 2016 Orphan Project
In 2016, our Costa Rica mission’s goal was to build ten more beds for the expansion of (RdV) Residence of Life’s home #2, Casa de Timoteo, a group home for ten teen children.
We are grateful to all who participated in this project and look forward to what God has in store for ALL future projects.
Anyone with a heart for helping ABINA’S Christian Ministries and the children at *RdV, please ask how you can help or join us on our next mission.
Team work with Jeremy and Brad…..the making of the beds at RdV.
THANKS TO OUR DONORS….
