My Father’s House Children Enjoy Summer Trip to Veracruz
My Father’s House in Tulancingo, Mexico, opened in May 2004, providing a home for abandoned, needy, and less fortunate children. Originally opening with 27 youngsters, that number has since grown to 67. The children’s home, built and underwritten exclusively by Benny Hinn Ministries partners around the world, is led by Executive Directors Efrain and Eva Bracho. Not only does My Father’s House offer an opportunity for precious children to grow up in a loving, nurturing, safe, blessed, beautiful environment, a great emphasis is placed on providing wholesome activities to eventually build strong, balanced, happy, and productive adults who reach the world for Jesus Christ. One of the most enjoyable weeks in the home’s young history occurred recently as leaders and students embarked in two buses on a well-planned, activity-filled trip to the port of Veracruz City. The journey took six hours, but the time in transit was quickly replaced by sun, surf, and swimming. There was even time for ice cream! Subsequent days included educational expeditions to the Aquarium of Veracruz. None of the children will forget the colorful exhibits of sea life and countless species of fish. Another exciting outing included a wax museum where the children were allowed to have photos made with wax figures of favorite athletes, actors, and politicians. After one last walk along the scenic shore, it was time to leave. After a stop in Xalapa for a delicious buffet meal, the children returned to Tulancingo—tired, happy, and filled with lifelong memories of a trip that would have been impossible for any of the children before coming to My Father’s House. All of the children and leaders give a big “Thank you, Benny Hinn Ministries partners!” The seed you have planted into these young lives will be harvested in unimaginable ways, and the rewards for what you are doing for the boys and girls of My Father’s House will be eternal!
