About Me:

God has blessed me immensely with the privilege of being raised in a Christian, homeschooling family, and missions focused churches. Since I was 20 years old, I've had the joy and great responsibility of founding/running children's homes in Bolivia, South America.

Iíve now lived in Cochabamba, Bolivia, for five years. At one point my parents and three younger sisters were all here serving alongside me but they've relocated to Texas and Tennessee.

My life is extremely full overseeing the "Casa de Amor Children's Homes" (41 children, 20 full time staff members, and any number of international volunteers on a daily basis) and I live out of the Baby Home (21 babies/toddlers currently).

There's rarely a dull moment!

I'm part of Cochabamba International Church's praise team, usually playing keyboard/piano but in years past...bass! I also love guitar and use it when we need "portable" music.

For more about life at Casa de Amor in Bolivia (and pics!):

For more about serving here with us, see:

Welcome Jen!
I loved looking at your blog! I have wanted to working in an orphanage for as long as I can remember! I do have a question, How can people here in the states help out?
Again, welcome!

Hi Jen, welcome to HSA!! What timing... the day you joined, my family was enjoying a visit from a friend who works in a Christian children's home in Guatemala. I'm hoping to go see her (and help out a little!) next summer. I'm so glad to find out that you're doing the same thing in Bolivia. Have a blessed day! Smile
