Rayo de Esperanza
My name is John Houser. I am a member of the board of directors for Rayo de Esperanza, a small Christian orphanage in Guatemala which was founded and is currently operated by Mike and Karen Rhea. Our philosophy is that children thrive best in a house parent setting. We can accommodate up to eight children per set of house parents. Our houses and other facilities are designed to foster growth and youthful experimentation in all types of weather in a ranch setting with horses, cows, sheep, chickens, dogs and cats. We are located on 70 acres of rural property near Rio Dulce, Guatemala. We have a large chapel on the property to serve the local community plus two orphanage houses and two small houses (2 bedroom) as well as a shop and a water purification plant. We are in need of house parents who want to make a long-term commitment to orphaned children in this area.
