Andrew’s Story

"I went to the Hovde House in Huánuco with a team of 20 volunteers from the Chicago area. Upon arrival, I was not exactly sure what to expect. From the minute I stepped inside, I felt welcomed and loved by all the women and girls in the shelter. I had honestly not expected that because of the history many of the women and children had gone through. Soon enough I was trying to communicate in pretty broken Spanish. I am pretty sure the girls were laughing at us, but they appreciated the attempt and seemed to enjoy our less than perfect Spanish. Looking back at my time in the shelter, I realized I left with much more than I came with. I left seeing a shelter that is staffed by absolutely wonderful people who care about these women. I saw smiles so big and filled with so much hope I could not do anything short of smiling back.  The biggest takeaway for our entire team is that no circumstances are too bad to still have hope. Jesus Christ meets everyone where they are at. Those women have had horrific things happen to them, but Paz is sharing the love of Jesus and letting them know that they are loved and cared about.”
