When you buy a bag you provide hope and support for the women and teenagers in Santa Cecilia, Colombia. The monies from selling these bags go back to these Colombian women.


We believe that every child deserves the comfort and dignity that a pair of shoes can bring.

Alexandra Martinez

This is definitely the place for my daughter to grow as she has the opportunity to know the Lord as so many other children,  more will have the same opportunity with the addition of the Coliseum.



The Coliseum is necessary.  The number of participants, both in the foundation and in the church, have grown.  Thus, there is not enough space.  The Coliseum will have the capacity to address the increase and reach all the children in the community so they may know the love of God.


Juan Daniel

Personally, I want to graduate with a degree in engineering and use what I  learn to help build the Coliseum. It’s a big project that will help many in this community with work, building a relationship with God, and obtaining an education. This is a great gift from God to His people.
